The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the completion of renovations to their Annapolis Regional Office and Community Hub at 931 Spa Rd. Annapolis, MD. The Arc also unveiled The Ferrier Family Community Room, named after the late Brad Ferrier and Linda Carter-Ferrier.
“Anchored in the Annapolis Art’s District, this reimagined Annapolis Regional Office is more than a collection of offices. It will be a true Community Hub—a place where people we support and their families can access resources, host support groups, receive family navigation services, and make connections easily,” said Jonathon Rondeau, President & CEO, The Arc.
He added that the reopening affirms The Arc’s commitment to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the community. “We are excited to deepen our relationships with great local businesses, residents interested in our work, and other organizations whose missions align to our focus on equity and access for people with disabilities,” said Rondeau. The unique 3,900 square feet of accessible space includes upgraded offices, inviting meeting space, and upgraded parklike grounds.
The extensive renovations were revealed during a ribbon-cutting and tour on June 24. Speakers included Jonathon Rondeau, Arc President & CEO; Raj Kudchadkar, Executive Director at the National Coalition of Minority Football Coaches and Board Member of The Arc, Gavin Buckley, Mayor of Annapolis and Steuart Pittman, Anne Arundel County Executive.
