The mission of The Arc of Rensselaer County is to advocate for the rights and safety of individuals of all ages who have an intellectual disability and/or a developmental disability or delay.
The Arc is a source of support, specialized knowledge, and available resources in assisting individuals and their families to meet their needs and goals.
The Arc works to influence societal attitudes and governmental policy so that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will have access to the services, assistance, and opportunities they need for personal growth and development, and participation in the community.
I work at the Arc of Rensselaer because I believe that all people should have access and experiences that ultimately will make their lives more fulfilled, enriched and full of outcomes that are personally driven. I truly love being a part of this team and process. I believe that the Arc of Rensselaer is exceptional in providing people with a caring & supportive environment in which to grow and flourish.
