Sherlock Sentinels are adults with disabilities and family members of children with disabilities who want to share their experiences with the Sherlock Center and one another. Sentinels reflect the diverse communities in Rhode Island. This is not an advocacy group, but rather an opportunity to help the Sherlock Center understand the needs of individuals and families. The information shared by the Sentinels helps to guide the activities at the Sherlock Center.
What is required?
Interested in becoming a Sentinel?
- Sentinels are asked to complete several short surveys each year to tell the Sherlock Center about the successes and challenges in their lives.
- Sentinels meet twice a year (spring and fall). Meetings include a presentation or activities on a topic of interest to Sentinels.

Sentinels Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee is a group of up to 20 Sentinels who meet bi-monthly at the Sherlock Center. The Advisory Committee helps to plan the meetings for the Sentinels. Advisory Committee members also participate in an annual review of the Sherlock Center's five-year plan and are asked to provide feedback on specific Sherlock Center activities throughout the year.
Sentinels interested in becoming an Advisory Committee member must apply and participate in an interview. New members will be selected based on their interests, experiences, and ability to contribute to the work of the Advisory Committee. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applicants will be contacted as vacancies come available.
