Andrew Oliver is the founder and director of Do For One NYC. He is a social service professional with 10 + years of experience assisting adults with developmental disabilities as they make their own journey to acquire work, volunteer work, live at home more independently, or find a sense of belonging in their community. Through his work, Andrew was inspired by Citizen Advocacy where one to one relationships are made on a voluntary basis between people with and without disabilities.
His ideas have been shaped by his training at the Training Institute for Human Services of Syracuse University, the Citizen Advocacy network, and Joni and Friends network. His work has also been informed by a range of experiences at his former employer Job Path, namely, by helping people with disabilities discover what they’re good at and finding employment and social networks that best match their contributions.
