Tufts Health Plan Foundation recently awarded The Arc of Massachusetts a grant of $5,000 for our new workplace initiative. The Arc project was nominated for the grant by the company’s Parallel business resource group, which advocates for Tufts employees with disabilities. The grant will support trainings for employee resource groups (ERGs) at several companies in Greater Boston to help people with I/DD succeed in the workplace and provide information to employees who have a family member with a disability.
Please join The Arc of Massachusetts in celebrating 65 years of making a difference for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) including autism and their families. Innumerable advocates, families, public officials, donors, human service agencies, and friends have worked tirelessly to reach this milestone.
I was so pleased to take part in recognizing Anne, Jillian, Angelina and Braeden last night at our 2019 Gala, with the help of WBZ’s Chris McKinnon and our President Deborah Norton! What fitting champions for our 64th anniversary. You can find their stories here.
