The Arc of High Point hasn't added a story.
The unemployment rate for adults with disabilities is dismal. The
small number of resources offered paired with the lack of advocates
for this community have resulted in many adults failing to truly
thrive after high school graduation. My sister could easily become one
Not if The Arc of High Point has any say in the matter! We discovered this incredible gem nearly 9 years after our mom passed away and after Mal graduated from high school. Through this program, my sister has built key skills vital to maintaining healthy relationships (including that with her boyfriend of 3+ years whom she also met through activities at The Arc!), managing personal decisions, and understanding her own rights and responsibilities in society. I cannot sing enough praises for the ARC!
While they have managed to keep their program fees low enough that
we can self-pay (as Mallory approaches year 14 on the registry of
unmet needs with no assistance from the Innovations Waiver), there is
still a critical need for fundraising to help keep this wonderful
program affordable and growing well into the future.
No matter the size, your donation illustrates the importance of
people like Mallory. They deserve affordable resources to build both
job and interpersonal skills to live fulfilling lives - the lives we
want for ourselves and our own children. The resources you support
through your donation means MORE people with disabilities are able to
attend the programs offered by the ARC like the Wild & Free Day
program, Creatives Arts, and many other community-facing opportunities
built to support, include, and grow the skills of those with
intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Once my fundraising goal of $1,500 is met, I’ll be rappelling off one of the tallest buildings we could find to scream from the ROOFTOP that my sister is kind, smart, and IMPORTANT! I’m not asking you to rappel with me, but your donation would mean so much to both Mallory and myself. Will you consider donating today?
