PathPoint supports people in living the life they choose. The organization partners with people with disabilities, people with mental-health diagnoses, and young adults to pursue their hopes and dreams through strengthening workplace abilities, building life skills, and developing meaningful relationships.
PathPoint supports people with developmental disabilities in learning about their personal rights and advocating for themselves. We partner with self-advocacy groups such as People First to amplify their voices in local policy decision-making processes. This year PathPoint completed a successful campaign to request more funding for developmental disability services from the state, with self-advocates calling and writing letters to their local legislators and visiting elected officials. Help us strengthen the self-advocacy skills of people with developmental disabilities by sending them to the California Disability Services Association’s Legislative Affairs Conference in Sacramento this year!
I like to participate in self-advocacy so I can help make changes in the community to help others.
- Jeff, President of PathPoint’s Self-Advocacy Group
