About Us

When seriously disabled young adults turn 21, they lose their right to remain in their special, secure, state-sponsored residential schools. According to State Education laws that person is "aging out". Legally defined as adults, in reality, many think, feel, and act like children. They require special homes with 24-hour care.

Advocates for Services for the Blind Multihandicapped began in 1979 when a group of parents of children with special needs were faced, with the problem of their children "aging out". By 1983, they developed a solution: the establishment of small group homes where their adult children's physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs could be met with dignity, compassion and the respect they deserved.

Advocates' Individuals are blind and/or visually impaired and deaf; all face additional handicaps such as mental retardation, developmental disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, and/ or other challenges.

Advocates for Services for the Blind Multihandicapped is committed to helping these people develop to their highest potential.
