Thank you to everyone who helped, donated, and golfed at our 36th annual Arc of Wayne Foundation golf tournament. It was our most successful to date bringing in more than $35,000 to support individuals with disabilities!
The weather was absolutely perfect, and we had so much fun out on the course throughout the day with our sponsors, donors, and friends of The Arc Wayne.
We also want to extend a huge thank you to Lyons National Bank, our presenting sponsor, for always supporting the individuals we serve. We are so grateful to be located in such wonderful, generous communities.
Wayne ARC has changed its name to The Arc Wayne to join hundreds of state and local chapters across the United States who have branded with The Arc – the largest national community-based organization advocating for and supporting individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families. The new logo includes The Arc “catalyst” icon, which represents a burst of energy and is symbolic of forward motion, optimism and independence.
The Arc Wayne decided to align with The Arc to strengthen our voice as we continue to find alternative financial support and create innovative programs and services for the individuals The Arc supports.
The agency will continue to advocate for and support the more than 1,700 individuals served by The Arc Wayne in Wayne and surrounding counties with compassion, understanding and support. While our name is changing, our services will remain as we continue to improve each of them: residential services, employment services, Roosevelt Children’s Center, respite and recreational opportunities, Key Industries workshop, and more.
We look forward to this transition as an organization as we continue to promote community inclusion and integration of individuals with and without developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Jessica Blondell, our Development Coordinator, writes all of our blog posts to keep everyone who supports The Arc Wayne up-to-date with what the agency is doing in the community. Enjoy!
