Protection and Advocacy for People with Disabilities ( P & A) is seeking volunteers for their Team Advocacy project. This is a great project for law students as the training is not long and the actual volunteer time is limited.
As a trained Team Advocacy volunteer you will be matched with a P & A staff member. At a convenient time the Team will conduct an inspection of a community care facility. The Team will then complete a form basing the responses on their interviews of clients and observation of the staff. These reports are an important part of the system to protect those living in group homes and facilities from harm. The residents often have mental or physical limitations.
If interested, contact the Pro Bono Program. They will put you in touch with the correct P & A staff member
