Shout Out!


Here at The Arc we love and appreciate all of the staff but sometimes our great staff are EXTRA! We would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to our child care staff, Destiny, Kaitlyn, Lily and Triniti. During the week of spring break they went above and beyond to make sure that the children in our program had a super fun filled week. They organized a theme each day complete with themed decorations, daily activities, crafts and snacks. They did much of this on their own time and with their own money! The children were so happy to be here and loved all of the activities. It is their vision and drive that makes our program successful. We cannot wait to see what they come up with for our summer child care program.

Thank You!

We would also like to recognize Mallory Ledoux for her outstanding work on our "Battle of the Day Habs " event. The amount of energy and dedication she put in to make sure that all the athletes had a great time was beyond amazing! The event was a great opportunity for local Day Habs to all come together and participate in some fun and exciting games! Thank you to all the volunteers, caregivers, staff and especially the athletes that helped make this event a success.
