Website Launched for People for Disabilities

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Arc of Mecklenburg County , led by Executive Director Lauren Borchert, has launched a new website -- separate from the agency's main website -- called SCHOOL2Life to assist young people with disabilities in transitioning from school to college or employment.
The organization, located on Park Road, is a United Way agency for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The site, parts of which are still under construction, grew from discussions on best practices with other groups working with the developmentally disabled and an identified gap in transition services.
Funding for the project came from a school-to-community-transition grant through The Arc of the United States
