Joanne is the "Diva" of MARC 3. She enjoys life and all that it has to offer. Recently, she went to the beauty salon and received a haircut with some highlights. This was to get prepared for her big day. On March 25th, Joanne's birthday, she went to Providence Place Mall were she was able to do some personal shopping. She purchased one of her favorite character t-shirts, "Hello Kitty," and had her name placed on it.
Joanne loves to spend time in the community; the longer the ride the better the trip. She is full of spirit, despite her past health issues.
Joanne enjoys spending time with her housemates and staff. She is a real PLEASURE.

MARC: Community Resources is an affiliated chapter of the The Arc, the largest national volunteer-based organization devoted solely to advocacy on issues pertaining to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. On the statewide level we are also very active with our state Arc, Arc CT.
Funding for MARC: Community Resources’ Adult and Children’s Leisure Services, Advocacy, Education and Outreach Programs comes from Middlesex United Way which is advancing the common good in Middlesex County by investing in the building blocks for a good life – education, income, health and housing. The mission of Middlesex United Way is mobilizing the caring power of communities to strengthen lives and help people.
MISSION STATEMENT: MARC: Community Resources empowers adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities to realize their dreams and make choices about their lives. To honor and help fulfill these dreams, MARC provides people with choices for housing, employment, and social/recreational life.
Since 1955, MARC has advocated for the rights of people who have disabilities. In that year, eight families came together to ask why their children were not allowed to attend public schools. They worked tirelessly over countless hours to inform the public about the educational needs of their children. Slowly they opened doors not only for their own children but also for many others who today attend school like any other child. They also opened minds, prompting communities to become more inclusive of people with disabilities.
MARC: Community Resources is a nonprofit agency providing support and choices to people who have disabilities. We believe that a person is defined by their abilities. They want to make decisions about their own lives and be valued members of their communities.
