Advocacy and Protective Services Inc. (APSI) created the Ron Kozlowski Advocacy Award in 2010, to honor the former APSI Director’s lifetime of advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities. This award is given annually to a person or entity outside of APSI who has demonstrated a lifetime achievement in advocacy for individuals with developmental disabilities, and who has a long-term connection with advocacy efforts within the service system.
Now through April 28, APSI is accepting nominations for this year’s recipient, and the award will be presented at the APSI All Staff Luncheon in June. To nominate someone, complete the form on APSI’s website. The form can be downloaded, printed, and faxed to Cindy Ison at 614-262-3838, or scanned and emailed to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
APSI is a private, non-profit agency dedicated to protecting the rights of Ohioans with developmental disabilities. The agency advocates for people by helping people make their desires and needs known — especially when they cannot speak for themselves, or if they have no other advocate. APSI provides an array of guardianship and protective services to individuals, age 18 or older. The agency provides these protective services as a contract agency of DODD, and serves more than 4000 adults.
