Hear Shondel's Story in His Own Words

When The Arc of Atlantic County first met Shondel, he was looking for an organization that would support his needs; a place that would work with him to acheive his goals. Today, Shondel lives in his own apartment in Atlantic County and works for an area business with colleagues that value his positive attitude and strong work ethic.

"Without The Arc, I don't know where I'd be." - Shondel
