Year-End Giving 2018

Fulfilling Dreams

The Arc Westchester started with a mother's dream for her child...and it continues
because of you.

As we look forward to celebrating our 70th anniversary next year, we are reminded that one small newspaper ad placed by Ann Greenberg in 1948, a mother seeking to create a preschool program for her son with Down syndrome, spurred a paradigm shift. Thanks to fierce advocates like Ann individuals with developmental disabilities now enjoy positive and enriching lives as members of their communities. At The Arc Westchester, we believe inclusion makes our communities stronger.

This holiday season, we hope that you will embrace Ann’s spirit by making a year-end gift below to The Arc Westchester Foundation. With YOUR support, we will ensure a bright future for the next 70 years.

 

Gratefully yours,


Tibi Guzmán, Executive Director/CEO

Building Bright Futures

“When I came to The Arc Westchester’s Children’s School for Early Development 15 years ago, I never imagined that this organization would give me so much more than I have given to it. I take great pride in teaching and helping our youngest program participants build skills that will help them succeed at home, in school and in the community.”

Supporting the Entire Arc of a Life

“When my son, Jason, was born 43 years ago, families were often encouraged to send children with special needs to an institution. We chose to enroll Jason in early intervention at The Children’s School when he was just 10 days old. Today, my son lives in a group home run by The Arc Westchester and holds a job. I am so happy to be part of The Arc Westchester Family.”

— Emily Kingsley, parent and advocate
