Please help families on long island!


We are dedicated to protecting the legal rights of students and adults with disabilities. Each year we help hundreds of individuals to get the education and services they deserve. Unfortunately, due to lack of resources, we are not able to help all of the families who need our assistance. We are now asking your help so that we can provide our vital advocacy services to hundreds of unserved individuals.


Long Island Advocacy Center needs your help to continue helping families

  • A donation of $50 allows us to provide phone assistance to 10 families
  • A donation of $100 allows us to provide phone assistance to 20 families
  • A donation of $500 allows us to represent one family at a school meeting
  • A donation of $1,000 allows us to provide legal representation to a family at a formal legal proceeding
