What do developmentally challenged adults do once they are out of school and reach age 21 in Greater Williamsburg? An organization called ARC of Ability is there to take over the training of happy and productive citizens. Their vision is driven by the opportunity for hope, growth and change - for everyone, regardless of disability, to become a valued, contributing member of his or her community. This involves vocational training, tailored to the needs of each individual.
Pam McGregor, Executive Director of ARC of Greater Williamsburg, spoke recently to the James City County Rotary Club. ARC's goal is to be the champion of individual rights for all people with developmental disabilities, while continuing to develop programs to advance this cause.
