The Arc of Nebraska

25-WORD DESCRIPTION:

For over 60 years The Arc of Nebraska has provided advocacy to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:

  • $14.75 per week goes to help reach out to 1500 families to update them about issues in the disability community. ($177) 
  • $244.79 goes to help provide trainings on issues from navigating Medicare to improving workplace accessibility. 
  • $1 per week provides a meal for a person with developmental disabilities with their state senator. ($52)


A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

We have a member who was unable to speak until she was 20. Her time in a facility had provided a detrimental environment that left her unable to advocate for herself. She came to a chapter meeting and began to get support. Now following many trainings, care, and support she is a fearless advocate for others with disabilities. She regularly testifies, speaks at events, and organizes others to help make the world a better place for people with disabilities.
