Why should I become a WWAARC Member?
Your membership gives us a stronger voice at the local, state, and national levels to support and advocate for Nicole and the hundreds of other individuals who we empower to live their best lives.
- Locally – With the encouragement of our Supported Employment staff, Nicole overcame life-debilitating learning difficulties, as well as a developmental learning disability to secure a career where she is on the fast-track to a supervisory role. Nicole was awarded the Joslin Outstanding Achievement Award in 2022 from the New York State Industries for the Disabled.
