Our MISSION is to improve the quality of life of intellectually disabled adults and their families.

Home

Welcome to the Advocates for Special People website. We are an independent Non-profit organization working for the benefit of our mentally and physically challenged family members who have outgrown the public education system. 

 

We provide educational speakers for our membership, transportation and operating expenses for our day centers, and sporting events for our athletes through fundraisers, grants, and generous donations.


Here we try and stay in touch with you about what we are doing and what is coming up.

Check out our photos, fliers, and news bulletins.
Also, you will find a link to information on the Arlington Eagles and their trips to special athletic events to participate in a variety of competitions. The website is always growing so check back often for changes in schedules and new contents.


And as always, please contact us if you have any questions or need anything.
