The Arc Nature Coast - Unveiled!

The long awaited grand opening of The Arc Nature Coast took place this morning at The Arc's beautiful new Spring Hill facility at Partridge and Mariner Blvd.

The Arc Nature Coast is a nonprofit organization that serves people with developmental disabilities and helps them to live and stay within their communities by offering life skills and employment training.

The ceremony began with speeches highlighting the history of The Arc and offered thanks to the many donors who made this new educational center that also doubles as a regional evacuation shelter during hurricanes and other natural emergencies. 

Here, Mark W. Barry, Executive Director of The Arc Nature Coast, addresses the crowd while County Commissioner Adkins (left) and Senator Fasano (middle) are looking on.

Steve, thanks, The Arc has been working and making a difference in our community for decades.

Juli, yes, and with the budget crunches that so many state are facing, community support for organizations like this are more important than ever.
