Disability Advocates

Support People with Disabilities

"Save our Services" Rally

Oak Hill Parents and Guardians; staff and supporters came to make their voices heard. The future of quality care for people with disabilities increasingly depends on the advocacy of parents, guardians and others. Much is at risk as our state attempts to deal with the worst economic recession in 70 years and faces a real four to five billion dollar deficit.

Oak Hill Ambassador Program

We rely on goodwill ambassadors to help us advance our mission.  At Oak Hill, we help children and adults with disabilities experience rich, fulfilling lives in their communities. 

Anyone can become an ambassador just by visiting our website.  Every new ambassador helps our cause.  Engage. Give, and Volunteer are just a few ways to help. 

 

Oak Hill Parents, Guardians, Family & Friends

All the progress focused on safe, quality community-based care is at risk as the state comes to private agencies like Oak Hill.  Please consider doing ONE thing, today, to make your voice heard.
