What our employees are saying!

“I truly enjoyed the many trainings and meetings with the Community Inclusion team and other Community Inclusion providers. My perspective has been enriched as I’ve learned more about disability justice and advocacy. I am energized by discussions and trainings that cause me to challenge my previous viewpoints and I love visioning new ways to approach inclusion at a macro level while being transformed by relationships at a personal level. I also loved discovering new skills and gifts that my clients possessed. It is wonderful to witness a relationship unfolding between a client and a new friend from the community. As a whole, I would describe The Arc’s work culture as community-minded, supportive, welcoming, dedicated, loyal, efficient, effective, passionate, fun, inclusive, informal, mission-driven, respectful, organized and holistic.” KS
