Remembering Dorothy Kurzweil - A Long-Time Friend of The Arc

December 7th, 2016

Dorothy Kurzweil was an advocate and partner for The Arc of Essex County and a clinical social worker at Saint Barnabas Hospital in Livingston.  She provided support to mothers and fathers in the pediatric, NICU, and ultimately maternal child departments for over two decades.  A kind and trustworthy confidant, Dorothy recognized the value of making connections between new parents  and The Arc as families began their journey raising a child with special needs.  

Countless children and families became a part of The Arc family through the Parent-2-Parent and Stepping Stones Early Intervention programs, receiving therapeutic services and support thanks to Dorothy.  Her tireless dedication laid the foundation for continued partnership between The Arc of Essex County and Saint Barnabas for years to come.
