SOAR Fox Cities’ Advocacy Program is designed to provide information and community resources to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families/caregivers.  This is done in a variety of ways, including:

  • Individual advocacy support and information to individuals who call, email or visit SOAR offices
  • Two People First chapters that are hosted by SOAR Fox Cities
  • Brain Injury Support Group
  • Seminars and informational sessions on disability-related topics that will help individuals with developmental disabilities and their families advocate for themselves.

People First is a national organization with a mission to encourage and train adults with developmental disabilities in self-advocacy, identifying community resources, teaching problem-solving skills, and researching and addressing disability-related issues on the local, state and national levels.  Each of the chapters hosted by SOAR Fox Cities has an adviser (staff member) who provides oversight and advice to the participants.  Each chapter also has a vote at the state level and is involved in making changes and advocating on topics that affect their lives and the lives of all individuals with developmental disabilities.
