We would like to personally welcome you and thank you for your consideration in supporting The Arc of the Bay’s 5th Annual Kohl’s Charity Fashion Show scheduled on Friday, July 23rd at the Sheraton Bay Point Resort. It’s an exciting time at The Arc of the Bay as we continue to expand our programming and offerings to the 275+ individuals with Human Needs here in Bay and Gulf Counties in providing life and employment skills that allow them to lead a more productive and independent lifestyle. As we continue to advocate for INCLUSION for the individuals that we serve, we’re slowly tearing down that wall of division allowing more opportunities and possibilities for individuals with disabilities. There is still more work to be done…employment rates among people with disabilities are very, very low: Only 40 percent of adults with disabilities in their prime working years (ages 25-54) have a job, compared to 79 percent of all prime-age adults. Last year, we assisted in training and finding competitive and integrated employment for over 150 individuals with disabilities in Bay and Gulf Counties. We are very excited and proud to announce that our Employment Services program has expanded into the Calhoun, Franklin, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington Counties in the spring of 2021.
We would like to give you an idea of what to expect during this amazing event. You will be introduced to 30 individuals with “HUMAN NEEDS” as we are all “SPECIAL” as they will be strutting and showcasing the latest fashion trends from Kohl’s Department Store as they walk down the ‘catwalk’. At The Arc of the Bay, we teach Self-Advocacy, Self-Choice, Self-Determination and this wonderful event allows them the opportunity to do just that…EXPRESS THEMSELVES!! Each one looks forward in sharing with you THEIR PRIDE, THEIR PERSONALITY, and THEIR OWN PERSONAL STYLE…of WHO THEY ARE. The cheers, applause and tears of joy from our previous events are still echoing and remain with them, our staff and everyone who attends.
