Many individuals with disabilities reside in correctional institutions, psychiatric facilities, adult foster care homes or child caring institutions. Unfortunately, they are often subjected to abuse and neglect by staff at the facility. Michigan Protection & Advocacy Service, Inc. (MPAS) monitors for such. Protecting our most vulnerable citizens is a high priority for MPAS.
