Advocacy

The term advocacy encompasses the actions one takes in order to effect change for a cause they are invested in.  The Center for Change KSQ, invested in our local community and beyond, partners with many great non-profits, organizations, and events to help effect further change than just those individuals we get the pleasure to sit down with in the cottage. 

Bombus Special Education Advocacy

Jocelyn, who has over a decade of experience working with IEPs and 504s, has her Masters in Multi-Cultural Education, and spent the majority of her career in corporate training and education. As a Board Certified Special Education Advocate, her goal is to advocate for your child to secure a safe, meaningful and appropriate educational program.

A Child's Light

A Child’s Light provides financial resources to children who have been victimized by sexual assault or domestic violence.  Unfortunately, many abused children never receive trauma informed mental health as a result of limited financial resources.  A Child’s Light is a continuing service to our most vulnerable children and adolescents in Chester County.
