A Note from the Director

I was amazed by how many people took a chance and tried our programs virtually. It is inspiring to see everyone participating and enjoying the opportunity to socialize with their friends, staff, and volunteers in the virtual activities. Hopefully, we will be able to laugh, play, and unite in Leisure programs face-to-face in the near future.

Please know the Leisure team is thinking of you and your family members and hoping that everyone is safe and healthy. If you are experiencing hardship, anxiety and or depression, please contact us and we can assist you with getting the resources you need during this time. Please be sure to sign up for the weekly Arc e-newsletter to receive information regarding program updates and COVID-19 resources. Thank you so much for your support, patience, and compassion through this challenging time.

With much appreciation, we thank you and wish you a joyous holiday season!
