Delores and Lauren’s Story

Citizen Advocate Lauren Stevens tells the story of her and her family’s 40-year relationship with Delores, a woman with an intellectual disability. She shares stories about Delores’ love of singing, shopping, and sharing cake with friends, and the impact the relationship had on everyone involved.

In 1970, the first Citizen Advocacy program opened in Lincoln, Nebraska. Since that time, it has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Europe. Disability Rights Nebraska has provided training and technical assistance to local Citizen Advocacy programs since 1978.
