Dundalk's Mathias Wins Arc's Community Connection Award
The Arc Baltimore has presented Kathy Mathias with its 2011 Community Connection Award. Created in memory of Selma Greenfeld, the award honors an individual who demonstrates joy, compassion, and friendship with others and who significantly improves their quality of life.
Kathy began working at The Arc's center in Dundalk in 2008 and from day one has been a hard worker who is dedicated to the individuals she supports. "She is always doing the little extra niceties that make people feel special," says Arc Baltimore Executive Director Stephen H. Morgan. "In addition, she goes that extra mile to help people at the center get out in the community."
Dedicated to helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve their greatest potential since 1949, The Arc Baltimore supports more than 4,000 Baltimore City and Baltimore County residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
As one of the nation's largest and most respected organizations of its kind, The Arc Baltimore is an indispensable resource, providing vocational training, residential services, supported employment, and other programs and services. For more information, visit www.thearcbaltimore.org.
