2009 The Arc of the Year Award Winner
The Local Arc Chapter of the Year Award honors a local chapter for outstanding efforts to maintain and/or build programs of excellence in their community and demonstrate a significant expansion or improvement in services during the past year.
In 2009, The Arc Volusia was awarded the Arc of the Year for embodying all that the award stands for. The Arc Volusia reached out to families in neighboring communities that desired Arc services not offered in their community and worked as a partner with the local colleges and school systems. The Arc Volusia embodies an agency that is moving forward and expanding, yet constantly improving the quality of services offered.
