This group is possible from a City of Middletown Block Grant, Liberty Bank Foundation Grant, and The Family of Thomas J. Regan.
More about MARC: MARC began as a grassroots organization in 1955 spearheaded by eight families desperate for help and support for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). At that time there was little support or community services for their children. Public schools were not an option at that time and group homes were non-existent. Large, cold, impersonal institutions were the only (and unpleasant) alternative to their plight.
Eventually they successfully petitioned the Middletown Board of Education to admit children with I/DD. Through the years MARC has opened multiple group homes, created business ventures, started a homeownership program, began a recreation and a self-advocacy group and so much more. Today we are a multi-faceted organization serving hundreds of adults and children with disabilities in employment, community living, and recreation programs.
MARC Community Resources is an affiliated chapter of The Arc, the largest national volunteer-based organization
devoted solely to advocacy on issues pertaining to individuals with I/DD and their families. On the statewide level we are also very active with The Arc CT. MARC is also proud and grateful to be the recipients of a Middlesex United Way grant that supports our Adult Leisure Program and our outreach and advocacy efforts.
