Adult Advocacy provides one-on-one long-term support to adults who are affected by FASD.
“Knowing that there is someone who understands me, who gets ‘how’ and ‘why’ I think the way I think,and who doesn’t judge me, really means a lot. I feel like I matter, like they are looking at me as a person and not just a trouble maker.”
