A Message From Our Executive Director

Serving in the role of Executive Director for The Arc of Southwest Georgia, I find myself with an incredible opportunity to work for a leading organization with a mission and vision that I truly believe in. The Arc of Southwest Georgia has a rich history of leadership and advocacy that spans across decades and geographic regions. The newly named Arc of Southwest Georgia is well positioned to continue that great legacy.

At The Arc of Southwest Georgia, our main priority is ensuring the individuals we support continue to receive the services and respect they deserve. We work with our partners to meet the needs of families and individuals through program expansion, advocacy initiatives, community integration and interagency collaboration. Current disability services face innumerable pressures and challenges, but I am optimistic that we will continue to make a positive and lasting impact through our collective work.

The Arc of Southwest Georgia is dedicated to fostering a culture of passion and excellence in promoting our mission and vision and transitioning disability services to new heights of independence and acceptance.
