Advokate exists to promote the inherent worth and dignity of every human being.
We believe that all human beings have inherent, God-given value and are worthy of respect and protection regardless of age, place of residence, stage of development, state of health, or level of ability.
We are a registered charity working in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada, and our work is funded entirely by the support of our generous donors. Donations made to Advokate are eligible for a tax receipt.
