Join “All Aboard The Arc!”
We need your help! Over 30,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are directly served by the Massachusetts chapters of The Arc. More than 180,000 people and their families are touched indirectly by services such as advocacy and legislative work. The Arc-Center of Hope Foundation serves individuals in the Worcester County Area and parts of Connecticut to lead the most fulfilling and independent lives possible. Your support in “All Aboard The Arc!” will continue to make our mission possible.
All monies raised will stay within the agency and support our growing
programs. Did you know that state funding for agencies like the Center of Hope Foundation is not guaranteed? There is no state law that says when an adult with disabilities turns the age of 22 they must have a day or work program, transportation or receive one to one staffing. In many states, adults sit home with no program or job. Without the constant efforts of dedicated human service providers such as the Center of Hope, funding could be cut and services might be reduced or potentially eliminated. Can you imagine how this would affect the lives of these individuals? The closing of institutions and community integration that so many have worked to build would take a step back and opportunities for community involvement would be lost.
Donations are a tax deductible contribution. If you would like to donate to or become a Corporate Partner of the Center of Hope Foundation, please contact us for further information and /or click the donate link below the video.
