Staff Testimonials

“The individuals here are amazing to work with. There is never a dull moment. It is a pleasure to work at a place that is so friendly and comfortable. You just wouldn’t want to work anywhere else. I had no idea that there was an organization  that does anything like helping out people with people with disabilities. They are very flexible with their work schedule and the benefits from working here are great.” -Dolly Wilson, Fiscal Specialist

“I love working here! Meeting all the different people here and working in a fun, upbeat environment makes work fulfilling. My main goal is to keep life meaningful for these people through informal teaching and doing activities to improve their cognitive skills. My nephew has a mental disability and that is what really motivated me to make a difference and change lives. I love helping other people and it makes my job more enjoyable!” -Emily Young, Program Trainer

“My 14 years at the Arc of the Quad Cities Area has been outstanding. Interacting with the amazing individuals that we have here is what makes me get out of bed everyday. I never say “I don’t want to go to work”. I love my job. As the individuals learn from me, I also learn a lot from them. I learn a lot about people skills and how to be a good human being. We work to make these peoples lives ordinary by finding ways to teach them new skills. -Katrina Obertance, Program Supervisor
