President’s Corner

Joining ARC back in April 2008 as CFO was one  of the best decisions that I have ever made. It has been  privilege to work for ARC and with Troy, the  management team, the direct care staff and our clients  over the past eight and a half years.  I am looking forward to the challenges that will  come with my new role as CEO. With the incredible  support that I have received from the Board, management  team, direct care staff and clients I know that our best  years are ahead of us. Together we will continue to put  the “clients first”.

Many thanks to the Marion County Roadbuilders Association for putting on another awesome Florida Feast. This year the event was held at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion and was attended by over 1,000 hungry guests who dined on gator, turkey, venison, frog legs and all the fixings. If you missed the event this year, we look forward to welcoming you next year!
