AWS Foundation LogoEasterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana was recently awarded a $50,000 grant from AWS Foundation to support general operating expenses.

"We are extremely grateful to AWS Foundation for its continuing support and belief in our commitment to making a positive difference for people with disabilities,” said Donna Elbrecht, Easterseals Arc CEO and president.

Funding for general operating expenses helps pay for important resources and supports the entire organization without being restricted to a specific program or service.

Easterseals Arc offers a broad range of services that includes employment services, day programs, residential services, recreation, respite, and support in the community and at home. Easterseals Arc has about 1,100 individuals with disabilities enrolled in services and supports hundreds more through community partnerships, events, support groups, and more.

About AWS Foundation: Founded in 2007, AWS Foundation supports a wide range of organizations in northeast Indiana working to develop a community in which people with enduring intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities are engaged fully and meaningfully in all aspects of community life.
