Galt Advocacy: Advocating for the Disabled Community

Every day thousands of disabled individuals in the State of California are attempting to benefit from Department of Social Services programs and county Health and Human Services programs.  They may be applying for services, communicating with public agencies or dealing with paperwork, appeals, denials and compliance issues.  There are rules, laws and regulations that have to be followed and each agency has their own.

While these public agencies are happy to tell you how to comply with their
regulations, what happens when you disagree with what they say?

What do you do when you are told you are not eligible but your friend,
who suffers from the same disability, is receiving the service?

How do you appeal if you suspect you are being treated unfairly?

Myra is available for speaking to groups over zoom with no cost. Hear what people are saying about Myra’s small group meet ups:

Without reservation, Myra and Caleb graciously agreed to join our Sunset Church special needs small group on Zoom last Friday to share about Myra’s faith, their commitment to serve the special needs community, and IHSS. We came away with so much information understanding benefits such as IHSS we knew little about. Myra, Caleb, and team’s passion to serve the special needs community is evident. We were inspired and equipped with practical resources. They are well-versed in special needs related benefits and laws. Thank you, Myra and Caleb.
~ Sincerely, Marrisa

I thought Myra and Caleb provided valuable information to help demystify IHSS to our families. I looked at the Galt Advocacy Facebook page and they posted additional resources that many of us could use. We appreciate the time they spent with us.
~ Blessings, Larry and Danine

I really didn’t know what MediCal, let alone IHSS was, this was totally foreign to me. The information and knowledge we learned Friday really helps me know at least where to start and I am very grateful for that. How to acquire Government benefits is very foggy and information provide by these agencies often is quite ambiguous at best. A big thanks to Myra and her son!
~ Roger
