BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Kathy wears many hats, one of her most important roles
is one of a Parent Advocate. We value the input from
parents on the Board; this perspective is critical.
Loretta has been a part of 'The Arc Family' for 50 years!
She's most proud of watching our progress over those years.
She was one of the founding members of our Recreation Program and our weekly Bowling League
Director & Self-Advocate
Jamie is a self-advocate receiving Arc services and
offers his firsthand experience to the board. He works and
lives in the Flemington area with his friend/roommate.
I am a mother of two daughters and have lived in Hunterdon County for over 35 years. My oldest daughter has special needs and lives with me full time. I continue to be a very active special needs advocate for her education in her younger years and now for support in her adult life. While my girls were in Clinton Township elementary school I co-founded an Inclusion Awareness program for 1st-8th grades, called “The Butterfly DisABILITY Awareness Program”. This program was well received and successful in raising awareness of DisABILITIES.
I co-founded a Special Needs group called “Friendship Connections” for Adults with Special Needs in 2003. During the 18 active years of the group, we created a bowling club and cooking classes that met four times a month, alternating cooking one week and bowling the next week. It was an honor to watch the growth of these adults from when we first started the group.
For the past 4 years, I have been a member of the Board of Directors for the Arc. I am excited to be a representative of the Arc and have this opportunity to learn more about the programs and activities available to the clients. My daughter joined the Recreation Activities in 2009 and loves the activities, especially the cruises and weekends away. The Recreation Department has been a critical part in giving her confidence, personal growth, and friendships.
