The Arc of Haywood awarded Evergreen funding
The Evergreen Foundation recently awarded The Arc of Haywood County two grants for a total of $23,825.00. The grants will support two programs — $3,825.00 for expressive art therapy and $20,000 for community living and supported employment. The Arc is pleased that the Evergreen Foundation is able to make funds available during the winter months (September-February) when there are fewer enrichment opportunities in the area.
The Evergreen Foundation is a private nonprofit foundation that supports services and programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the seven western counties of North Carolina. Contact the Evergreen Foundation by calling 456-8005.
