Fund The Need
Mental health awareness has been brought to the forefront of our community due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our community is currently experiencing a mental health crisis. Resources are overwhelmed, and of those resources, precious few are trained to support those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our 17th Annual After d’Arc Gala will focus its Fund the Need campaign on raising money to address mental health needs for people we support in the following ways:
- Provide personal support with resources, training and strategies to promote positive mental health in every day living for those receiving our services.
- Provide professional support to promote and sustain successful employment and community involvement through partnering with all of The Arc NCR’s programs.
- Provide comprehensive training and support to all staff of The Arc NCR in both caring for one’s own mental health and in recognizing and supporting the mental health needs of others.
- Provide resources to support the current Clinical Supports Team, and the growth of the team to better meet the mental health needs of people supported by The Arc NCR.
Every dollar matters, and to see the specific impact you can have, here are examples of how your contribution can contribute to this campaign:
Funds two people supported by The Arc NCR to attend a 12-week Trauma Support Group and one month of Pet Therapy for an additional two people.
