Testimonials and Success Stories

I joined ARC because I knew that helping people as a job, rather than just during my spare time, would an efficient way to pursue this passion.  I stay because assisting people to learn skills, develop community connections, and become more independent enables them to improve their own lives in the long term.  The fact that we are helping an underserved population completes the trifecta:  Great good is done, for those with great need, while making the most of the limited time and energy that life affords us.
