Construction has started on The Arc of Schuyler’s 210 12th Street, Watkins Glen location to complete renovations and build a 3,800 sq. ft. addition for a new Neighborhood Center.
The Neighborhood Center, according to Jeannette Frank, Executive Director at The Arc of Schuyler, will be available by the end of 2019 for nonprofit agencies to reserve rooms for community classes, meetings and events.
“Volunteers through The Arc’s programs can assist with event promotion, set up, and refreshments,” Frank said. “Our goal is to offer people with disabilities more opportunities to be involved with community members, contribute their talents and explore their interests.”
