Rights & Advocacy

Community Living Huntsville advocates with people who have a developmental disability and their families to ensure they have access to the same rights and freedoms and opportunities as others.

This includes making decisions about their lives, living independently, getting an education, obtaining employment and volunteer opportunities, obtaining an adequate standard of living, and healthcare, getting around and being included in community.

People who have a developmental disability experience almost five times more abuse than other people. When people know their rights, they are less likely to be abused.
