MAKE A MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTION
The Arc Prince George's County is seeking funding support at this time as we have ten group homes under quarantine. This affects 35 residents and 70-80 members of our staff. This means staff must shelter-in-place or quarantine with residents who have symptoms or have a COVID-19 diagnosis.
To protect our staff and residents, we have an urgent need of donated items or funding to purchase items such as:
- no-touch thermometers
- surgical gowns
- new air mattresses
- hand sanitizer
- disinfectant spray
- disinfectant wipes
- toilet paper
- paper towels

HELP US ADVOCATE
The state of The Arc is intrinsically and inextricably linked to the state of our DSPs. Did you know that 75% of our DSPs are African natives and people of color? So, this critical workforce - mostly of color - was already underfunded across our state by $90 million, and now we put them at high risk with no compensation for that additional burden to themselves and to their children.
Make sure you ask your elected leaders about how people with disabilities and their caregivers are being monitored and protected. Click here to find out who your representatives are, and how to contact them.
