Mary and Leonard F Wing Jr
Sensory and Resource Center
ARC Rutland Area is proud to announce the launching of the Mary and Leonard F. Wing Jr. Sensory and Resource Center, the Wing Center.
Volunteer artist, Liz Mead, of Chittenden, has painted our Tree of Life, which highlights our community partners and resources working together to accomplish mutual goal. Agencies are invited to make appointment to see the Tree of Life.
The Wing Room focuses on 9 areas to assist and enrich all while integrating social and communication skills for its members. These include Area Agency Services, Sensory Awareness & Meditation, Advocacy Education, Computer Skills Station, Electronic Learning System, Social & Life Skill Classes, Arts & Crafts and Club Meetings.
ARC felt the need to add this program to provide additional services for those with developmental and intellectual disabilities in and around Rutland County. Through grants, donations, and the hard work of many volunteers, the goal is coming to fruition.
ARC, founded in 1958 by Leonard and Mary Wing, is a non-profit organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities in Rutland County. ARC currently serves 1,000 individuals annually through various programs and events.
