Testimonials and Success Stories

I choose to work at the ARC of Rensselaer because of how we do our work. I have been with many other agencies, and none of them put the welfare of the people we support in the forefront as much as we do. Every day I am witness to people and staff making life richer, happier and more meaningful. We really do connect people to their community in a way that fosters importance and relationships. The old adage that “I get more than I give” rings true at the ARC of Rensselaer
