PROTECTION AND ADVOCACY (P&A) SYSTEM FOR PEOPLE
On July 1, 1977, Kahua Ho'omalu Kina (A Place of Protection for the Handicapped) was established as a non-profit corporation in the State of Hawaii to carry out this new federal mandate in the State of Hawaii. Shortly thereafter, the corporation began doing business as the Protection and Advocacy Agency of Hawaii. The corporation was renamed Hawaii Disability Rights Center (HDRC) in January 2000.
Today, there is a protection and advocacy system operating in every state and territory of the United States, in Washington D.C., and for Native Americans. Congress has expanded the authority of the P&A systems to serve all disabilities and to operate and enforce the following statutes:
Protection and Advocacy is also authorized in Hawaii Revised Statutes 333F-8.5, and HDRC is designated by the Governor (Executive Orders 77-3, 82-4, 89-2 and 94-06) to provide its important protections for people with disabilities.
