Review for Arc of Orange County, Inc., Chapel Hill, NC, USA
I've never had the pleasure to work with an organization as supportive and influential in the community as the Arc of Orange County. I am currently a second year student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and I got involved with the Arc as a Community Partner less than a year ago.
The staff worked to place me with a compatible family and child. I worked with a 10 year old boy once a week. We often hiked, took rides in the car, listened to music, sang, and laughed. I never would have met this amazing little boy or his incredible family if it weren't for the Arc of Orange County. This family and child have taught me so much about persistence, perseverance, and faith in life.
This is an incredible organization with dedicated staff, volunteers, and clients. They work hard to suit the needs of those they serve as well as those who have chosen to serve this organization through community service. I would recommend volunteering for this organization to anyone who wants to meet great people, learn about themselves, and shed light on the social issue of disability in our community.
