Advocates For Special People, Inc
Our MISSION is to improve the quality of life of intellectually disabled adults and their families.


Arlington AISD is closed for weather Monday, February 23. The Connexions will be closed also.

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.

General Meeting Change

We are moving the meeting for March 12, 2015 to April 16, 2015. At that time Lisa Jamieson will be providing an update on Legislative Issues Concerning Guardianship that will be of interest to all of us. At that time we should have a better and clearer picture of how we are affected. We will have 
an update of our fundraising activities completed and those to come for the balance of this year.  

We will be discussing our future and that of our Special Needs men and women.  What you want to see and what you want for your family needs to be expressed so we can all move forward together. 

We, who make up the Executive Committee and General Board, need your input and hope to see you all there!
