Every Dollar Makes a Difference

Support Advocacy

Thousands of families in the greater Erie area need information, resources, technical assistance and advocacy on issues including early intervention, special education, inclusion, transition to adulthood, employment, housing, transportation, health care, Medicaid waivers and government benefits including Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security Income, Social Security Disability Income and non-government benefits including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and utility assistance. And, The Arc Erie County is there to provide the needed family support and advocacy. We also work with state and federal legislators on issues that impact children and adults with disabilities and their families such as increased funding for early intervention and special education, increased funding for the waiting list and increased rates for home and community based services.
