Chatham-Savannah Citizen Advocacy
- Non Profit
AboutChatham-Savannah Citizen Advocacy is a 36-year-old community based non-profit organization that recruits, matches and offers support to over 110 local citizens in voluntary citizen advocacy relationships. Fourteen local people form the board and govern the work of two program staff (Tom Kohler and George Seaborough) and one office manager (Ashley O’Brien).
Citizen advocacy is built on one-to-one, freely-given personal relationships between two people. One is a person with a disability who has been excluded from typical community life and the other is a person living a good, ordinary life here in our community. Friendship, spokesmanship, social support, and social change can all emerge from these intentional relationships.
