Testimonials and Success Stories

Shawn's Story

Shawn Fultz is confident, smart and determined. He can most definitely run circles around most of us with his thrill-seeking energy and enthusiasm to try new and exciting athletic ventures, including sled hockey and skiing.

He credits much of his success in these areas to The Arc of Rensselaer County. “I’m in a much better place now than I used to be in,” he said, explaining that he is receiving the level of care that he needs to function at his best. And his best possible level is pretty amazing.
