This paper provides a first person narrative of a 'crisis advocate'. A crisis advocate is someone who is contacted, makes themselves available and swings into action for a short time to advocate on behalf of somebody else in need. The person is usually someone who is highly vulnerable and cannot advocate on their own behalf. In this case it was a young man with a disability. The advocate (author) supports citizen advocacy based on a non-payment philosophy so therefore no payment is made or received for this advocacy. It is given freely based on one human being needng the support and advocacy from another human being.
