2020 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 navigate this new 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.
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. We could always look forward to a range of 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. For us, 2020 was The "UnEventFull" Year.
