MARC: Community Resources
MARC Community Resources, has as its mission to empower adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities to realize their dreams and make choices about their lives. To honor and help fulfill these dreams MARC provides people with choices for housing, employment and social/recreational life. MARC is not so much about programs and buildings, but more about empowerment and choice -- from children participating in the Saturday for Kids program, to high school students experimenting with different career possibilities, to adults living, working, and participating in their communities. Individual choice is what drives the agency's mission and their passion.
MARC was founded in 1955 by a small but dedicated group of parents and friends of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their first efforts won them the right to have children with disabilities educated in public schools. With a major success like that, they forged on together, improving the lives of people with disabilities by championing their rights to access a wider scope in everyday living.
