Tools to Help You Advocate

You have powerful tools to advocate for your residents. Service coordinators understand residents' lives and needs, and you can share this information plus stories that show how your work helps your residents and your community.

Another important advocacy tool is data. The American Association of Service Coordinators has several handouts you can share with legislators that show statistics on how service coordinators impact residents' lives and the community.
