Our Voices Matter

Our Voices Matter exists to make sure our voices get heard and our rights are respected. We want to work together to advocate with the government and community. We want to share our perspectives and knowledge on topics that impact us and other people who use developmental services. We want to raise awareness of what advocacy is and why it is important. We want to advocate for changes or ideas we have about the services we receive from Christian Horizons. Our Core Values are: Supporting each other, respect, advocacy, and building connections.

Articles From Our Advocates

The “Self-Advocacy Groups Updates” are a series of articles written by people using services within the grassroots self advocate groups in Christian Horizons’ communities. The topics for these monthly articles will include a range of topics, highlighting the perspectives of people who use services.
