A local non-profit is celebrating an award that few have achieved. The Community Foundation has awarded the Arc of Calhoun and Cleburne Counties with the Standards of Excellence Accreditation. Fewer than 30 non-profit organizations have received this award. Community Foundation Donor Grants Director Heather Lamey says The Arc deserves this award.
The Arc held an Open House to celebrate the accomplishment with the community. The Arc Executive Director Tammy Moreno says it has been a long road, but has been worth every second. Moreno says The Arc wanted to share the achievement with the community and supporters.
The money from the accreditation will go towards helping better the Arc in any way necessary.
