A not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities in Cortland and Madison Counties has been awarded over $22,000 in grants.
The Arc Madison Cortland received the funding from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to help with the organization’s guardianship and recreation programs. The move is designed to aid people with developmental disabilities who wouldn’t otherwise have a legal guardian or advocate.
Supported by Chapter staff and community volunteers, the Arc Madison Cortland’s guardianship program currently supplies guardianship supports and services to four people and is ready to assist 5 more as a Standby or Alternative Standby guardian.
