A message from Frank Sofia, CEO of ARC Marion
As we prepare for our fourth annual Ocala Bike Fest, I am reminded of how crucial community support is for the well-being of our clients. The Florida Legislature continues to underfund the services that we provide for the developmentally and intellectually disabled citizens of Marion County. Due to the lack of adequate funding, ARC Marion has been forced to reduce our Residential Services by five group homes in the past two years.
That is why I am respectfully requesting everyone’s support. Individual donors in our community have become increasingly vital to our mission. Please help support the fourth annual Ocala Bike Fest so that we can continue to provide life enhancing services for the developmentally and intellectually disabled citizens of our community.
ARC Marion, Inc. is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that has been helping people develop their abilities since 1959. ARC Marion, Inc. is a multi-service agency that provides a full range of support programs on a daily basis to hundreds of persons with developmental and intellectual disabilities throughout Marion County, Florida. Our staff and community supporters have a passion for the well-being of our clients and are focused on fulfilling our mission through the many programs that we provide. I am truly grateful to work with such great people. I look forward to a successful year serving our clients and seeing you at our events.
