The Arc of Massachusetts Announces Grant from WITH Foundation, Project to Develop Cultural Competency Training and Toolkit for Emergency Medical Personnel

The Arc of Massachusetts is excited to announce that we will be formally partnering with The Arc of the United States and The Arc of Oregon to develop a web-based, culturally competent training and toolkit for emergency medical personnel.

Based on our work through Operation House Call, The Arc of Massachusetts will lead this project as we aim to ensure quality care and equal access to emergency healthcare for people with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), especially those with other marginalized identities, by educating healthcare providers working in hospital emergency departments.

We are grateful to the WITH Foundation for this award and can’t wait to get started!
