The United Arc is an essential business that has been in full operation throughout the current public health emergency to ensure the safety and well-being of the individuals and families we serve. Our staff are all essential personnel, indispensable, never more so than now. As such, our expenses to maintain our operations have not abated and to a great extent have substantially increased by the extraordinary costs not only associated with infection control and prevention,but sufficient staffing to meet these new challenges.
This has caused an additional hardship for The United Arc in providing the level of service and support the individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities we serve and their families have come to depend on during this difficult time.
The United Arc has a solid history of providing quality services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families going back to 1951. Every year, we provide services to individuals and their families in Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden and Worcester Counties of Massachusetts.
The pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges, not only for The United Arc, but for everyone. Here at The United Arc we are responsible for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the individuals and families we serve as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19. As health care providers all of our staff are essential personnel and as such, our organization has continued in full operation throughout this public health emergency.
We have always enjoyed coming together with our growing network of volunteers, members, staff, stakeholders, community and business partners, and the individuals and families we serve to celebrate our mission of supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in achieving the universal goals of inclusion, choice and independence. Prior to the pandemic we could always look forward to a range of in-person events such as our Annual Gala & Auction, Annual Business Meeting, Open Houses showcasing Talents and Pursuits, the Annual Summer Picnic, among others.
Sadly, this was not possible in 2020 and continues as such this year. This is Another “UnEventFull” Year.
Promotion of our Another “UnEventFull” Year sponsors begins upon commitment. We offer the opportunity to commit for multiple sponsorships throughout the year resulting in year-round promotion. We will promote our sponsors on our website, social media platforms, monthly newsletters and other communications. All of us at The United Arc appreciate and rely on your support.
