We need your support now more than ever to help ensure the continued delivery of our programs and services for people with disabilities.

We need your support now more than ever to help ensure the continued delivery of our programs and services for people with disabilities.

Medicaid funding and policies are rapidly propelling Coarc services into a managed care system. During this critical time, your membership will help us to ensure that needed supports and services continue to be provided. As managed care evolves and changes our landscape, we all must join voices to champion for people with disabilities and preserve services. Please join our circle of family members, neighbors, businesses and friends by becoming a Coarc member for 2014. More Coarc members mean a stronger voice for Columbia County on behalf of the individuals we serve!

Coarc was founded in 1965 as the Columbia County Chapter of NYSARC, Inc. by families and community advocates. Membership in Coarc includes membership in NYSARC, Inc. and The Arc of the United States. A greater membership builds clout to impact policy and funding decisions at state and national levels. Statewide, NYSARC, Inc. and all its chapters have achieved a milestone of 100,000 members. Chapter bylaws require that we renew our membership each year, so please help us maintain this advocacy milestone on behalf of people with disabilities.
