What We Do

The Arc of Essex County’s 3rd Annual Craft Beer Open on September 18th

Registration is open for The Arc of Essex County’s 3rd Annual Craft Beer Open, taking place on Monday, September 18, 2023 at Crestmont Country Club in West Orange. The event will feature 18 holes of golf with on-course craft beer tastings and a post-event cocktail and awards reception.

Action Alert: No Cuts to Medicaid!

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill that includes radical work rules for Medicaid enrollees ages 19 to 55 in exchange for lifting the debt ceiling. This bill could result in millions of people losing access to Medicaid! We need to stop this in its tracks and tell Congress to keep Medicaid OUT of debt ceiling negotiations.

People with disabilities rely on Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) to live independently in their communities. HCBS help people with disabilities with everyday support, like getting around the community, employment supports, dressing, bathing, taking medication, and much more!

There are already more than 650,000 people stuck on waiting lists who are not getting the services they need. Cuts to Medicaid and more red tape would make it even harder for people with disabilities, their families, and the workers that support them to access the care they need to thrive.
