“VyStar is honored to support the great work The Arc Jacksonville does in our communities. The Arc Jacksonville provides our fellow citizens with disabilities something we all need: to be a part of our own community and achieve a real sense of belonging,” says West.
In 2010, The Arc Jacksonville purchased VyStar’s former corporate headquarters for their Westside programs. Today, this site on Wesconnett Blvd. serves more than 100 individuals through day programs and services, including Triumph Industries and SOAR.
“We are grateful for VyStar’s unwavering support for nearly two decades. VyStar’s dedication to The Arc Jacksonville, and to the population as a whole of individuals with differences, has meant a great deal to our community,” says Jim Whittaker, President and CEO of The Arc Jacksonville.
