On Monday, November 13th, key Arc staff Linda Lucas, CEO, and Melissa Soules, Senior Director of Support Program Services were invited to be the keynote presenters discussing how to access supportive living options at the United Way Caregiver Coalition’s Munch & Learn Presentation.

Speaking to a crowd of approximately 110 caregivers, The Arc of Essex County’s team shared knowledge about various housing models available through The Arc, and how to utilize resources from multiple sources to fund housing and supportive services.  Attendees were able to ask questions about personal challenges and The Arc identified clear opportunities associated with planning for independent living.
