2017 SCARC Foundation Annual Appeal

Monday, October 23, 2017


Since 1985, the SCARC Foundation has been fulfilling the ongoing needs of SCARC and SCARC Guardianship Services. Today with your help, the SCARC family of services will be able to continue to provide recreation programs including summer camp experiences, basketball, swimming, bowling, & dances; respite care which provides a much needed break for families who have a child with a disability; and guardianship services which helps guide families through the legal process of becoming the legal guardian for their disabled family member. In addition, SCARC provides a county wide network of 23 residential homes, 8 supportive living apartments, 7 employment and activity day programs, including the Harvest Home program which provides food to 700 needy families each month and many family support services. This year, SCARC will provide services to nearly 650 people with developmental disabilities. 

Raising a child with special needs can sometimes be difficult but knowing there is an organization like SCARC that is by your side to help whether it be to answer questions or provide such amazing opportunities for people with disabilities makes life just a bit easier. 

We urge you to support this vital organization for our local disabled children and adults.  SCARC has always been a forerunner in the field of developmental disabilities.  Let’s keep it that way!  We hope you will consider a gift to the SCARC Foundation Annual Appeal of $100, $250, $500, or $1,000 --- or whatever you can afford.  The money raised will enable SCARC and SCARC Guardianship Services to continue to provide and expand their programs to children and adults who need them.  

On behalf of The SCARC Foundation, we wish you and your families a safe, healthy and peaceful holiday season.  As we celebrate our blessings this holiday season, let us remember that giving is the greatest gift of all.
