Our Story

A+J Patient Advocacy began serving clients in September 2021, receiving its 501(c)(3) status in June 2022. Founded by Rebeka Acosta, and named in honor of Adrian Hanson and Julie Powers, the agency operates with the support of a Board of Directors and Advisory Panel.

As a nonprofit, independent health advocacy agency, we provide free health navigation, health advocacy, and health education services in Southern Nevada. Our clients include children, teens, adults, and families, in addition to partnerships with local community organizations and advocacy professionals across the country.

We believe that every person should receive appropriate and timely healthcare, regardless of geography, income, race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, ability, diagnosis, or complexity of condition.

We know it is important for spouses, partners, parents, guardians, siblings, extended family members, and other supportive individuals to participate in our services alongside the patient.

We will ensure our services remain accessible, equitable, and free for all patients and their families. Our work is only done when the patient thrives.
