Self Advocacy – Self Determination

Lincoln Street Inc. has long valued and acted upon the concepts of self determination and self advocacy. We listen and respond to the voices of the people we serve.

Our self advocates have been active since 1997 and are connected to the statewide self advocacy group, the Green Mountain Self Advocates (link) . Members have opportunities to attend the National Self Advocacy conference and actively participate in the statewide network. Self Advocates supported by LSI are both socially and politically active.

Self Advocates play a critical role within LSI by assisting with the orientation of new staff members joining the LSI team, participating in independent consumer satisfaction surveys and providing feedback for inclusion into the Agency Quality Improvement Plan.
