The Powers Family
My family has been with The Arc for a long time and we have been pleased with all the help that is available through them. If they couldn’t help, they found me other resources.
The Williams Family
Traci Williams has been our Navigator since our beginning with the Unmet Needs program. She has provided countless emails of pertinent information and a monthly newsletter about all things available in our county and surrounding counties that our special needs grandson can participate in. Her monthly phone calls to check in and keep up with our grandson's progress have also been timely for a much-needed venting session for me. What makes Traci extra-ordinary, or super special, is that she lives in my shoes. She is a mom to special needs children. She has a deeply rooted knowledge of what I am going through 24/7 that not many in the industry can offer to their clients. KUDOS to Traci for a job well done, over and above the others!
The Arc provided our son with training and experiences he could not have gained anywhere else. We have been thrilled with the amount of support and guidance supplied by the staff even as they worked through the problems stemming from Covid. As a result of their efforts, our son transitioned from high school to a job with far better pay and more responsibility than we thought possible. We cannot imagine what we would have done without The Arc.
Our family has been dealing with The Arc of NC since 2018 when we found ourselves without any viable adult program or job for my IDD son after he graduated from high school. Although we did not live in Buncombe County, they accepted him into their Project Search program. Following completion of the program, they helped my son find employment and continued to support him in post-employment even now. Their entire staff always dealt with both my son and myself with respect and compassion. They are a supportive, nurturing, and caring team who take the time to get to know each client as an individual. I cannot say enough great things about this team. If you are given the opportunity to work with them I highly recommend it.
I'm so happy that my daughter joined Project Search, but even happier that The Arc of NC has followed her a year later, always ready to help with job search, interviews and more. I feel like we have a dedicated friend always there to walk beside my daughter as she matures and enters the adult world. We would truly be lost without them.
