The Arc is entering 2021 with optimism and bold plans for the future. The year 2020 was difficult for The Arc, our team members, the amazing children, families, and clients that we are privileged to serve, and our community. Yet Team Arc led with innovation and determination, creating opportunities for our agency not only to continue to provide stellar services, but also to position ourselves for future growth and success.
The Arc continues to invest in its future by supporting team members through the novel Champions of Change Learning Series. We are pushing forward with plans to expand the Courim Center, replace its roof, and build an accessible, barrier-free playground. We continue to build community partnerships and create linkages that foster greater inclusion for our clients. And, we are constantly brainstorming, developing, seeking funding, and implementing initiatives that will serve our mission to change the conversation around disabilities through provocative and meaningful advocacy and programming.
The challenges of the coronavirus are still with us, but our team is poised to meet those challenges. We continue to plan for the upcoming year, while paying close attention to the course of the pandemic and the needs of those we serve. Health and safety continue to be our top priorities as we navigate the changing landscape of the pandemic. With this in mind, The Arc is moving forward together with our team, clients, community partners, funders, and supporters, to continue the hard work that will lead to a truly inclusive community for all.
