In order to continue provide top quality assistance and support, The Arc has found it necessary to move to a larger facility. We were fortunate to find a facility approximately twice the size of our old offices, but still centrally located on First Street in Aberdeen.
We are hard at work remodeling the back half of the building to serve as a combination meeting room and life skills training center and plan to transition most of our meetings, events, and services to be conducted on site.
We are eager to have all of your come to our open house on July 16 and will be posting additional details soon.
As you may have noticed, the Arc of Grays Harbor has moved to 523 West First Street, Aberdeen WA 98520.
I want to talk about the reasons for that move.
First, the Arc of Grays Harbor has traditionally been an agency of the county department of Health as a provider of information and referral services. Because of funding changes, we must diversify our services.
Second, we see a big unmet need for people with disabilities in lifeskills training and a place for meetings and informal events.
This is my story about what it is like having a nephew with special needs. Well to begin with his name is Travis and none of us knew he had a disability until he was about 3 or 4. As a baby he was always very happy and had a smile that would melt even the coldest heart and he seemed pretty typical.
