DC Superior Court--Advocate for Mental Habilitation


DC Superior Court Mental Habilitation Volunteer Advocate Program

The mission of the District of Columbia Mental Habilitation Volunteer Advocate Program is to recruit and provide a corps of volunteer advocates. The purpose of the advocate is to assist persons with intellectual disabilities whose cases are under the jurisdiction of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

This is an opportunity for an individual who is 18 years or older to work with individuals with intellectual disabilities advocating for their needs both verbally and in writing. The advocate also works with social workers, attorneys, and judges. There is a requirement of 2 visits per month with your client who is located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The volunteer position requires a one-year commitment.
