As 2019 draws to a close and we say hello to 2020, I want to introduce you to a new feature on the Arc of Florida website, Chapters Helping Chapters.

The Arc of Florida would like to recognize Sheldon Hershman and The Arc Tampa Bay for lending a helping hand to Ridge Area Arc. The Arc Tampa Bay will be assisting Ridge Area Arc with conducting background screenings for the faculty and student mentors participating in Job-a-Palooza. Kathleen Border commented, “It absolutely saved us. We looked at lots of vendors that were mobile and completely unreasonable. If I am going to have to pay a bit more for a mobile service I would prefer to keep it in the Arc family.”

This is just one of many wonderful examples of how the Arc Family continually supports one another and how “We are Stronger Together!”  We would like to thank Kathleen for sharing the story and allowing us to recognize Sheldon and the Arc of Tampa Bay.
