Advocating for Camphill Village and Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Villagers, family members, friends of Camphill Village, board members, coworkers, volunteers, donors: we are all advocates because we know that Camphill Village provides the best setting possible for those adults with developmental differences who choose to make the Village their home, and the place where they find meaning in their lives.

Recently, in an effort to demonstrate our important work, many of you shared your very personal stories with the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), which we believe made a difference and helped us with our new contract with OPWDD. Thank you.

We hope that all of you will continue to reach out to us and add your name to our list of advocates. We need to know we can count on you to speak and write on our behalf when future needs arise, and we must call on our advocates.

Please add your voice to the chorus of people who support Camphill Village and adults with developmental differences. Simply send us an email at We will be very glad to hear from you! If you have already joined our advocacy efforts, we’d still like to hear your thoughts and suggestions, so please keep in touch!
