  • I know Kohler is the biggest reason Zybreyah has come so far in such a short period of time.

  • If I didn’t have The Arc, I don’t know what I would do. I don’t have babysitters… it’s hard. I love The Arc.

    Patricia Nadel Parent, Family Support’s Afterschool Program
  • There are very few programs available for working families with special needs children. The support The Arc provides to the community is immeasurable.

    Alicia Poaches Parent, Family Support’s Afterschool Program
  • When Alina was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, we were nervous about how she would react to working with the therapists. Our concerns quickly diminished as it is clear that each and every one of them genuinely cares for our child and strives to make Alina's life easier every day. The dedication to their work is incredible to watch and the difference we see in Alina is too great for words. Alina has improved so much and we could not have gotten to where we are now without them.
