for The Arc of the Mid-South
 MEMPHIS, TN



The Arc Mid-South provides family support and advocacy services, career development and job placement to  people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including Down syndrome and autism.

Our primary focus is keeping families together living in their own homes - not in group homes or institutions. 


YOUR HELP NEEDED!
Summer Camps 2017

Please help us fund The Arc Mid-South’s annual summer camps for individuals with disabilities, to be held June 8-11 (at Nelson Woods Retreat Center in Millington TN) and July 27-31 (at Pinecrest Retreat Center in Moscow TN) 2017. The camps give families a welcome break from day-to-day caregiving while letting youths with disabilities interact with their peers and experience social, recreational and educational activities. Youths eight year old and up enjoy such activities as volleyball, baseball, swimming, dodge ball, kickball, slip-and-slide water wave rides, Karaoke singing, dancing, and arts and crafts.  



This play time in the country puts a smile on so many young faces! But it costs money to sponsor the camps, and not many potential campers can afford the $233 per-day cost. That’s where you come in  -- a donation of $100, $50 or even $25 would help us to serve them.



Thank you in advance for your generosity!
