Enduring & Award Winning Partnership
Arc of Westchester partners with more than 250 businesses across the county and we place individuals in rewarding careers in law firms, retail, restaurants, schools, government offices and a pharmaceutical company. We’ve worked with some of our employment partners for decades and we work to bring in new businesses all the time.
One strong example of a longstanding relationship is our enduring and expansive partnership Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. This leading science-based biopharmaceutical company based in Tarrytown, New York discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions.
This partnership began in 2011 and Regeneron now employs eight individuals full time. This group of individuals work as facilities aides and are reliable, conscientious and show responsibility and consistency in their work.
“Regeneron takes pride in doing the right stuff and we think this is the right thing to do. One of the fears a company may have is that they are going to have to supervise an individual all the time and deal with problems they are not use to. Arc of Westchester provides job coaches who supervise the employee based on their skill level. Some need more and others are more independent. The support system is there!”
