Filling in the GAPS LLC seeks to help communities, organizations, groups, schools, and families engage in authentic dialogues about topics that are often hard to talk about such as race, disabilities, and mental health and to help orchestrate ways that we can collectively work together to reverse the narrative from ignorance and bias towards compassion and understanding for our communities.

When you’re looking for non-profit advocacy services, it can be hard to know where to turn. You want to work with a company that is committed to the same values as you, and that understands the challenges of advocacy work. Filling In The Gaps is one such company. We believe in empowering individuals and families affected by mental health & disabilities through education, and we understand how important it is to have an advocate who understands your specific needs.

We envision a community where all people regardless of race, disability, gender, age, economic status, religion or sexual orientation have access to appropriate resources to help them achieve their full potential.

Advocacy Services

We’re here to help.

Filling In The Gaps is a non-profit that empowers individuals and families affected by mental health and disabilities. We provide advocacy services for our clients, including educational advocacy, mental health advocacy, and disability advocacy.

With our education advocacy services, we work with schools to ensure that your child gets the best education possible. This includes helping you navigate the special education process when you feel your child isn’t being served well by the school system or getting what they need in terms of accommodations. We also advocate for your child if they are being bullied or discriminated against at school because of their disability or mental health status.

Educational Advocacy

This is when an individual or family member works with us to develop their own unique school plan—a personalized curriculum designed to help them achieve their academic goals while staying on track with their individualized education program (IEP). This plan will include how they will access classes and resources at their local schools if necessary; how they’ll be taught if they have behavioral issues; and what accommodations they should receive from teachers.

Mental Health Advocacy

This type of advocacy focuses on ensuring that individuals get all the services they need for mental health diagnoses like depression or anxiety disorders through Medicaid programs like I/DD waiver programs or state Medicaid waivers

Disability Advocacy

Disability advocacy is working to promote the rights of people with disabilities and ensure that they are able to live independently. This may involve providing support and advice, campaigning for changes in legislation or working to increase awareness of the issues facing people with disabilities.

Peer Group Support

Peer group support is a type of support in which people with similar experiences or backgrounds offer each other guidance and advice. This type of support can be helpful in dealing with difficult situations or life transitions. We provide a safe space & environment for individuals to empower themselves & others.
