NYSARC Trustees Award Supports Guardianship Services

The Arc of Delaware County was delighted to receive word that it will be receiving a grant from NYSARC’s Community Trust Remainder Funds in support of its guardianship services.

The Arc of Delaware County’s Guardianship Committee, comprised of dedicated members from the community, currently provides guardianship services to four people for whom NYSARC, Inc. serves as Legal Guardian.   The committee ensures all decisions made are in the best interest of the individual and are in harmony with the individual’s personal values and preferences, just as a concerned family member would do. 

The funds received from this grant will assist with ongoing expenses of operating the program and for life enhancing activities for people receiving guardianship services.
