    Seeking Advocate for disabled friend

    I'm helping an adult female friend who has a chronic illness expand her (already successful!) support system.

    We seek a person to meet with us regularly to be a sounding board, brainstormer, and possibly help interface with social services.

    Candidate will be a good listener, a patient explainer, optimistic, resourceful, creative and have great follow through.

    No special experience or training necessary. Just a desire to help.

    Please respond with some information about yourself, even hobbies and interests. Ask questions for us to answer.

    This is a volunteer opportunity. Candidates with their own disabilities are urged to apply. We'll all help each other!

    My friend is highly functional for her disability, and is an inspiration to work with. This support system, also known as "circle of support" is based on the work of the late Judith Snow.

    Thank you.
