The Arc of Western Wayne County was my family's lifeline when we needed them the most. My sister Shirley, had always lived with my mother until mom passed away.

We needed assistance in securing long-term living arrangements for Shirley. Cheryl Polite and The Arc made it possible for Shirley to settle into apartment living independently.

Our relationship with The Arc and the staff has become one of a family.
