Remembering Matt Long

February 19th, 2021

Matt Long joined The Arc of Essex County family more than 20 years ago when he began attending the Livingston Community Resource Center (would later merge with other programs to become part of the West Caldwell Hub).  An easy-going person, Matt had a great relationship with his peers and staff.  He could often be found in his favorite staff member’s activity room, happily drinking his coffee, eating his favorite snacks including chocolate cake, and reading his magazine or newspaper.  He will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.

The Arc of Essex County conveys its condolences to the Long family and Matt’s extended Arc family during this difficult time. If you would like to make a donation to The Arc of Essex County in Matt’s memory, please visit – an acknowledgement of your tribute will be sent to family members.
