ARC Broward: New Technology
First Nonprofit Foundation awarded ARC Broward of Broward County, Florida, $75,000 to enhance their programs with technology. Part of ARC Broward’s current strategic plan is to ensure their programs are “best-in-class.” The grant will help them progress toward that goal as many of their programs currently operate with little to no technology. ARC Broward looks forward to sharing their progress and the transformation in their programs and clients with the First Nonprofit family as they introduce the new technology.
ARC Broward’s mission is to transform the community by providing opportunities for people with disabilities and other life challenges to realize their full potential.
Since 1956, ARC Broward has worked hand-in-hand with the community to provide the encouragement and opportunities that create life-changing outcomes, enabling people with disabilities and other life challenges to live, learn, work and play in their communities. ARC Broward operates ten locations and provides 21 programs to more than 1,200 individuals throughout Broward County, Florida. These include ARC Broward Culinary Institute, ARC Broward Electronics Recycling Services and the ARC Broward Learning Institute, mission-based enterprises that provide training and employment opportunities while generating revenue to help fund services. ARC Broward has maintained national accreditation status for more than 30 years.
"What a pleasure it has been to work with Joe Geiger and the First Nonprofit Foundation! From our very first interaction with Joe, we recognized how fortunate we were to have the opportunity to become a funded partner. Joe’s vision for the nonprofit partners to not only provide necessary funding for proposed projects, but to also build a network of partners to learn and grow with, is a forward-thinking approach to funding. We look forward to the opportunity to come together with the other funded agencies to learn about their projects and share our story."
