Annual Report

The Arc of Howard County’s

2016 Annual Report


Employment First

Employment First is a national movement, an initiative to address issues of inclusion in our society. According to the
Maryland Department of Disabilities, Employment First “is a framework for systems change that is centered on the premise that all citizens, including citizens with significant disabilities, are capable of full participation in integrated employment and community life.”

In this Annual Report, we include profiles of people served by The Arc who have found jobs they enjoy. Without The Arc of Howard County staff and willing employers, many people in our community would not experience the rewards – personal, professional and financial – of working at something they want to do. You can help by making a financial contribution to The Arc of Howard County to continue providing employment services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Thank you for your continued support.

Everyone deserves to live the fullest life they can. Of all the board’s achievements, that’s the one that makes me proudest.”
