“There are no words that can express my thanks for all you have done for my grandsons. I would not have been able to provide for my boys without your help. I thank God every day knowing I have you to turn to and help me fight for what is needed. And even during this pandemic, all I have to do is pick up the phone or send an email. You are always there for us.” – Glennie Campbell, Education Advocacy Services
"I really wish this coronavirus was over and my job coach could see me in person. But I'm glad Sarah can work with me over the phone, because I'm getting faster and better at counting money. I am proud of myself because I am doing so well on the register at work now, and I guess practice makes perfect!" – Katie Mericle, Comprehensive Employment Services Participant
“Our son Derek is the first non-speaking individual, diagnosed with autism, to be accepted into the Millersville University Integrated Studies Program. He has completed his first semester as a full-time student. This unique educational opportunity was made possible through the support of The Arc’s Agency with Choice. Derek was recently honored as a nominee for The Self-Determination-Against All Odds Award at the Chester County MH/IDD Annual Ceremony.” – Brenda and Bill Hughes
A lifetime of services centered on personal success for individuals of all abilities.
