The Northeast Arc, a not-for-profit organization that helps children and adults with disabilities become full participants in the community, honored Energi at its signature event, An Evening of Changing Lives. The Northeast Arc event took place on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Danvers.
“Brian McCarthy and his team at Energi have been great ambassadors for our agency, by providing work opportunities for people with disabilities, sending volunteer teams to beautify our houses, bringing holiday cheer to some of the older folks we support, championing our events and helping to spread the word about the role Northeast Arc plays in changing lives every day,” said Jo Ann Simons, Chief Executive Officer, Northeast Arc.
About The Northeast Arc
Northeast Arc was created in the 1950s by parents of children with disabilities who rejected the assumption that their children should be institutionalized. Now, serving over 8,000 people annually in more than 190 Massachusetts cities and towns, Northeast Arc is dedicated to helping people with disabilities become full participants in the community, choosing for themselves how to live, learn, work, socialize and play. The agency does this through a variety of programs, including Autism Services, Day Habilitation, Deaf Services, Early Intervention, Employment Services, Family Support, Personal Care Assistance, Recreation, Residential and Transition. The agency also runs the ArcWorks Community Art Center on Foster Street in Peabody. Northeast Arc is the largest Arc in the state of Massachusetts and the 2nd largest Arc in the country.
