All Children Together Resource Network

The Advocacy Network on Disabilities is the home for the All Children Together (ACT) Resource Network for the Special Needs of Children with Disabilities and Their Families, an initiative of The Children’s Trust. Its role is to work with The Children’s Trust and the organizations it funds to increase our community’s capacity to provide quality, inclusive programs to children with disabilities.

Its MISSION is to increase the participation of children with disabilities and their families in all aspects of community life through capacity building, advocacy, and promoting best practices.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities

The Advocacy Network on Disabilities helps thousands of individuals with disabilities and their families find needed supports and services. We provide some services ourselves, and arrange and coordinate others. For some, The Advocacy Network on Disabilities is the starting point; for others, it feels like their last hope to find the help they need. With many complex bureaucracies to navigate, obtaining services can be difficult and frustrating.

Our experienced, family-friendly staff can help you identify and advocate for the services and supports you want and need. We hope that during the time we work together, we can also help you acquire the knowledge and skills to become your own best advocate

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities

In addition to impacting the lives of individuals and families, The Advocacy Network on Disabilities is equally committed to SYSTEMS ADVOCACY. It is an effort to change policies, rules or laws that determine how services are provided. Systems Advocacy seeks change on a macro scale that can help a large number of people at once.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
