ADVOCATE

MRCI is committed to creating innovative and genuine opportunities for people with disabilities or disadvantages at home, at work and in the community. One way in which we ensure these opportunities is to help people get engaged in, and provide information about the issues that are important to them.

 

MRCI believes that individuals with disabilities should have access to effective and high-quality employment, day and self-directed (home-based) services of their choice.

 

MRCI is proud to support our clients and their family members as well as the broader disability community in partnership with other disability providers and advocates in analyzing these disability policy matters.
