We're excited to announce that Advocates has become an affiliate of Upstate Caring Partners, Inc. of Utica effective January 1, 2018. The goal of this strategic affiliation is to capitalize on the strengths of both organizations. Together we hope to meet the changing needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families with a broad portfolio of services and supports. Advocates will continue to be a leading provider of person-centered, self-directed services in Central New York. We are excited to join UCP and its robust family of agencies in addressing the future needs of people with disabilities and expanding our geographic reach.
