Caryn has been an active member of our Board since 2014, and we’ve benefited greatly from her talent, dedication and enthusiastic voice. This year, she was even elected president of the Board. “One thing I love about working with The Arc is making a difference in people’s lives,” Caryn shared, “I’ve seen individuals and families come to The Arc without hope, but after receiving our support their hope is restored. Their lives are changed.” Regarding our Board, Caryn says, “I’m excited about our Board members’ mix of talent, background and skills that complement each other and make it a really fascinating time. The outcomes of our meetings frequently surprise me—with this group of people, the results are usually better than I ever imagined.” She continues, “What I’ve learned that’s most important is that individuals with IDD are the same as everyone else and that’s how they should be treated,” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
