July 8, 2015 – Minute Man Arc today announced it received a $20,000 grant awarded by Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation. The support will allow Minute Man Arc to develop an electronic record keeping system for its Early Intervention (EI) Program which serves more than 400 young children each year.
We are pleased and honored to receive this grant through the generosity of Middlesex Savings Chartiable Foundation,” said Jean Goldberry, CEO of Minute Man Arc. “An electronic record keeping system will enable EI staff to be more producative and spend more time with parents and children. Early Intervention has amazing outcomes. Of the children who are referred to us with developmetal delays, 52% do not need further services when they leave us at age three. This represents an immeasurable benefit to the child and family and saves millions of dollars in special education costs.”
Minute Man Ar is a nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities across nine towns. The agency changes the lives of children and adults through therapeutic services, employment, recreation, housing and community involvement. Local residents can see how the Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation grant and local funds are benefiting Minute Man Arc at www.minutemanarc.org.

From sponsorhsips to grants, the bank and Foundation make a difference in many ways and we are pleased to support Minute Man Arc this year with the awarded grant.”
