Advocacy (1109 Resources)

Programs that intercede on behalf of individuals and/or groups to ensure that they receive the benefits and services for which they are eligible and that organizations within the established service delivery system meet the collective needs of the community; that attempt to marshal public support for a particular issue or cause; or that seek to influence legislation, local ordinances or administrative rulings in order to benefit specific interest groups or achieve specific social, political or environmental goals.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (33 Resources)

Programs that offer procedures for settling disputes which serve as alternatives to a conventional court trial.
