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.
The Arc to Honor Direct Support Professionals
The Arc Lane County appreciates the work direct support professionals (DSPs) do to make the world a better place for people who experience disabilities.
We are honored to work alongside these amazing individuals, and in honor of Direct Support Professional Appreciation Week, we have a special treat for our DSP workforce.
All DSPs are invited to stop by The Arc Lane County’s drive through window this Fri., Sept. 17 from 3 to 6 p.m. for a gift to celebrate DSP Appreciation Week. If DSPs cannot attend this Friday, call Susana at 541-343-5256 ext. 119 to make alternate arrangements to pick up your appreciation gift.
Great Golf Race to Benefit the Arc Park
Matt Huston, a long time supporter of The Arc Lane County, is participating in a golf fundraiser to benefit the Arc Park.
On September 20, Huston will play and finish 100 holes of golf in one day with the goal of raising more for the park. Huston has already exceeded his $7,500 goal.
Won’t you swing into action to help Huston raise $10K? Visit Matt’s Great Golf Race for the Arc Park to make a tax deductible donation today!
