Testimonials and Success Stories

Lauren's Story

Meet Lauren, a young woman who has an upbeat, energetic, engaging personality along with a remarkable enthusiasm for life. Her interests include the medical field, forensic science, and sports. Lauren has become a first responder with the Hoags Corner volunteer ambulance company where she has been a member for over a year.

But one of the most important parts of Lauren’s life was her love of music. This love for music led her to meet Rachel, an employee at The Arc of Rensselaer. One day, Lauren was rockin’ out in the hallway with drum sticks and air drums. Rachel asked her if she played drums. She replied, “Yes!” and insisted she was going to be a rock star!
