The ARC Westchester supports more than 2,000 children, teens, and adults who cope with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including (but not limited to) autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome. Millie Gaines, one of the 800 or so employees who works with clients at The ARC Westchester, visits the RadioRotary studios to describe some of the programs, which range from testing infants and young children through to residential services for independent living. Programs can be grouped into six categories: early childhood, day services, career and employment, family support, staying healthy, and living at home. Some clients volunteer to help other charitable programs, while some volunteers become interns who help the clients. It is a fascinating story.
