Your Vision…Our Work
During 2015, The Arc of Blackstone Valley celebrated our 60th year of advocating for and helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities improve their quality of life. Our values are founded on the belief that all individuals are able and entitled to live, learn, work, and socialize in inclusive and supportive communities. The Arc works very hard to make this vision a reality through its residential, employment and recreational programs.
But we can’t do it alone. We need your help to make this vision a reality. Private support from individuals like you will enable The Arc to develop new and innovative programs ensuring that our consumers have full access and full participation in the community.
Consider a gift to help us strengthen our employment and job training initiatives, recreational programming and our businesses: Flying Shuttles Studio, SORT, New to You, New to You Too, Daggett Farm Greenhouse, and Valley Landscaping.
Make a year-end gift to celebrate our 60th Anniversary!
