What We Do


Embracing an inclusive society is more important than ever. By promoting inclusion locally we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to live a happy life with dignity and respect.

Citizens with Power Leadership Team

Citizens with Power is a self-advocacy group for people with developmental disabilities who live in the Blackstone Valley area. This forum allows people to share information, learn from each other's experiences, discuss things that are important in the lives of people who have a disability and empower people to set goals, stick to them and never let go of their dreams. This group works very closely with Advocates in Action, a state wide self-advocacy organization in Rhode Island.
