Who We Are
Disability victim services and forensic interview training
The Adult Advocacy Centers exist to teach the world how to hear what people with disabilities have to say—particularly when they are victims of crime or abuse. We are a disability-led national organization piloting our groundbreaking programs in Ohio.
Plans are in motion to develop regional permanent centers and fully outfitted RV mobile units throughout the state, each providing space for a multi-disciplinary team. These teams will include law enforcement, prosecutors, medical staff, victim advocates, mental health specialists, forensic interviewers and representatives from each of Ohio’s disability-specific agencies. This model is the first of its kind anywhere in the world. Read about the Adult Advocacy Centers' model
