Welcome to The Arc Lane County!
The aspirations of people who experience an intellectual and/or developmental disability (I/DD) are high. Just like their peers, people who experience disabilities want to live and work and be valued members of their communities. The Arc Lane County helps children, youth and adults who experience disabilities and their families live full and meaningful lives in their community.
2020 Year in Review
Oh, what a year! Between a pandemic, wildfires and riots, it has been a year of challenges and heartaches for businesses and families alike.
Yet, even in the midst of such a difficult year, The Arc continues to be reminded of its many blessings. We are thankful for our amazing workforce, the incredible individuals we support, our dedicated board and community partners, and our generous volunteers and donors.
Local Family Affected by Wildfire to Celebrate Holidays in New Home
After fleeing the Holiday Farm fire this fall, Jessica and her son, Rudy, are looking forward to celebrating the holidays in a new home in a new town.
Jessica and her family received emergency food boxes from the CARES Center, along with home furnishings to replace their fire-damaged belongings. Families Connected also helped create a more inclusive environment at Rudy’s community-based childcare center and helped Jessica create a suitable learning environment for Rudy during comprehensive distance learning.
Jessica is grateful for all the community support she received and is eager to pay it forward. Read Jessica’s story, and how she is now reaching out to help other families in Vida.
The Arc Receives Grant from Collins Foundation to Increase CARES Center Capacity
The Arc received a $50,000 award from the Collins Foundation to help the CARES Center provide food boxes and other resources to the community.
The need is great within the community. In November, the CARES Center provided food boxes to 854 households and helped 73 families who had to quarantine due to a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure.
The award will be used to increase the capacity to provide more home-delivered food boxes and emergency food boxes to the community.
