The Arc of Delaware awarded funding for Employment Program

The Arc of Delaware is honored to receive funding from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. The Arc was awarded $30,000 in support of its Employment Program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The grant received is part of ongoing investments by Bank of America to help connect the unemployed, underemployed, veterans, youth and those with disabilities to employment opportunities and success.

“We are grateful to Bank of America for their continued support of our Employment Program,” said Susannah Eaton-Ryan, Director of The Arc’s Employment and Outreach Programs. “With this support, we are able to prepare individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities for a long term, positive employment outcome. Bank of America understands that to affect change, support must be systemic, not just financial.”

Bank of America and The Arc of Delaware have a long and successful partnership that provides unique and essential services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Bank of America’s Support Services Department offers well-paying jobs with excellent benefits to a community that has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

The Arc of Delaware provides highly individualized employment services to over 150 persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc supports persons in identifying and pursuing integrated employment opportunities of choice in the community. Funding from Bank of America will enable The Arc to continue performing this fundamental work.

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation provides philanthropic support to address needs vital to the health of the community through a focus on preserving neighborhoods, educating the workforce for 21st century jobs and addressing basic human services, such as hunger.
