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

Meet Efren


Efren is a go-getter. Since  joining ARC last year, he has been steadily promoted and now provides ground maintenance for the Defense Supply Center in Richmond.

All this, despite having lost his left hand five years ago.

"Efren has received nothing but high marks about his abilities and work ethic," said ARC supervisor Caleb Violette.

Among his duties, Efren, 67, tends to the landscape at the federal installation, as well as performing additional tasks when needed.

"We are very lucky to have such an outstanding employee working with us today," Caleb said, while Efren echoed  a similar enthusiasm about ARC. "I like the people," he added.
