Realizing Dreams - The Cherry Street Garden - The wish of a resident in Advocates Deaf Services program - to have a wheelchair accessible vegetable garden - came true last spring because of support from generous donors and volunteers from Dimension Data in Framingham.

Strengthening Community - Advocates Music Jam - One evening each month, Edward's Hall at Framingham's United Church of Christ is filled to capacity, as staff and clients from across the Advocates community join together to improvise live music, sing, dance, share stories and poetry, and listen.

Fulfilling Lives - Bring to Light Candles - A unique, entrepreneurial venture started by individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome who receive Advocates services. Last year, the business moved into its own manufacturing facility made possible by generous donors. Learn more.
