The Arc of Luzerne County Blog

I was employed at The Arc of Luzerne County for several months at the tail end of 2011 and working there was a humbling experience that made me feel like I was making a true difference in the community. It was an experience I won't soon forget. I also worked with some of the most amazing women I have ever met in my life. One of which I was exchanging text messages with earlier in the day....Karla Porter.

Karla, who is an avid human capital management blogger over at, alerted me to the fact that The Arc of Luzerne County now has a blog!

The Arc of Luzerne County Blog

The Arc of Luzerne County's mission: Dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities.

The Arc is celebrating its 60th year of advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. They have many great resources to families that may have no where else to turn for information and assistance. You should also know that, specifically, The Arc of Luzerne County has just recently moved from the North End of Wilkes-Barre (near Wilkes-Barre General Hospital) to Downtown Wilkes-Barre for greater accessibility to those in need in the community. You can read more about the move in the Times Leader article here. Along on with the move, they now have a freshly redesigned website that features a blog. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

We <3 Non-Profits and Community Service groups at NEPA Blogs. If you know of any that we do not already have listed on our blog roll, please send us an email at and we'll be sure to get them listed.

OMG and I am humbled by your words.. It was so much fun having you and your talent in the office for a way to short of a time! We have to find a way to continue to cause trouble remotely =)

In the meantime, we did some site re-engineering and the news/blog has moved to

March is Intellectual and Developmental Disability Month so our calendar of community events is hopping, I hope everyone checks it out and joins in!
