Advocacy

At Northern Rivers, we stand behind our clients and our workforce. We work with individuals and families who face poverty, abuse, neglect, substance abuse, and behavioral health issues. These are some of society’s most vulnerable citizens, and we need the proper support in order to answer society’s call. We advocate for fully funded contracts, investment in infrastructure, and the resources to fund, train, and keep the quality employees our clients deserve.
