The Arc of Essex County Seeks Letters of Support from Program Attendees & Families

September 30th, 2016

The Arc of Essex County consistently strives to improve its programs and services for children and adults of all ages.  We do so by applying to private and corporate foundations for funding to help offset program operating costs.  As you can imagine, the number of non-profit organizations competing for these funds continues to grow.  You can help The Arc to strengthen our applications by writing a short “Letter of Support,” detailing how The Arc has assisted both your family member and you.

Please mention in your letter the personal accomplishments your family member has made and the benefits your family has received from The Arc’s programs and services.  Feel free to include a particular experience or activity that your family member may have enjoyed on a day that sent him or her home with a smile. 

The Arc will use your “Letter of Support” when requesting funding from foundations and businesses to support our programs.  Please send your letter to the address below or via email at
