Client Advocacy Program


Rights of Persons Served Regarding Grievance and Appeal Procedures

The purpose of the Client Advocay Program is to:
  1. prevent rights violations and advocate for the provision of quality care in a humane environment, and
  2. review, investigate and resolve rights complaints or issues.
If you make a complaint, an assigned advocate will interview the person served, staff or others as necessary and review records, documents or policies. The advocate will then attempt to negotiate a satisfactory result on behalf of the person served.

If you feel that your rights are being violated, you should talk to your case manager first. If you are unable to get the matter resolved, you may register a complaint with the Center's advocate.
