It Matters To Me - Wage Issue

Jack O'Connor is just one of our many hardworking Direct Support Professionals who deserve a fair wage. People who work at The Arc are invested in the mission but they have to be able to support themselves and their family. Contact your local representatives and tell them that people who provide the most critical support deserve to be compensated for it.

It Matters To Me - Employment Options for People We Support

Arc employee, Tammi Birchenough, speaks about working with people with disabilities in a workshop setting and how important it is for people to have a choice on wether or not they want to stay in that type of setting or transition into competitive employment in the community.

Ball for All Basketball Game

The Utica Fire Department assembled a team to play against The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter. People we support with developmental disabilities had a dream of playing in a competitive basketball game in front of fans. Thanks to the UFD, their dreams came true. We had a great time, can't wait to do it again next year.
