In partnership with families, the Greater Richmond ARC creates life-fulfilling opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

Meet Drew

Lindsay "Drew" Miller, 23, is an example of what people can accomplish when they try.

He is blind in one eye and uses a walker, but is always willing to tackle something new. He’s helped answer phones, pack boxes, and shred paper, all part of ARC‘s pre-vocational job training program.

"If they can find something for me to do, they can find something for anyone," he says, adding his multiple disabilities initially made it hard for him and his mom Janet to find a day program in Richmond where he could participate.

Drew’s incredible "can do" spirit may have earned him the organization's  “Individual of the Year’’ award, but he says every day is its own reward at ARC. “There’s never a dull moment."
