Continued Support Advocates
YOU make dreams a reality!
What is a Continued Support Advocate?
Adults with intellectual disabilities come to LaunchAbility with aspirations of having a career. Continued Support Advocates are an integral part of the Supported Employment Program and our ability to make this possible. They come in after our clients are fully trained to ensure our clients’ continued success on the job. These dedicated volunteers check in with our employed clients on the job site to observe work performance, speak with supervisors and report back to the agency via written form. If there are any problems our professional staff is right there to step in and help.
"It is very rewarding to see my efforts as an advocate for LaunchAbility help adults with cognitive differences succeed in the workplace. This boosts their confidence and helps them feel successful, therefore I feel very proud.” Rebecca Pendergrass
“Anything I can do to help people with disabilities become more independent, not only benefits that person, but society as a whole.” Steve Flowers
"Volunteering as a CS Advocate has been an enjoyable experience that is always full of surprises. It's also fun to see how easily a workplace can be brightened with smiles from a LaunchAbility client." Amy Wharton
