Advocacy

Many people with disabilities qualify for programs and services through local, State, and Federal programs, as well as other non-profit and private sector organizations. However, these programs can seem complicated and can be difficult to navigate alone. Atlantis Community, Inc. has multiple experienced and knowledgeable advocates on staff, who can help with applying, appealing, and/or re-certifying for programs such as Social Security Disability (SSI), Medicaid, Food stamps (SNAP), Adult Financial Assistance Programs (e.g. TANF, AND, OAP) and many more.

Our advocates are also able to assist with housing advocacy-whether it be problems with a landlord, accessibility, reasonable accommodations, discriminatory evictions, or other disability-related housing issues.
