Monarch receives donation from Outer Banks Community Foundation

Monarch has received $3,500 from the Outer Banks Community Foundation to support transportation services for Beach Club of Dare program participants who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. At Beach Club, participants have access to therapeutic services, learning and life skill-building activities, social interaction and community involvement. They engage in a variety of activities including creative arts, exercise and dance and participate in Special Olympics, local volunteer service and other community-based activities. The program provides safe, engaging, community-focused opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Dare County community that are not available elsewhere.

“We are honored to partner with the Outer Banks Community Foundation as it supports access to critical services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This generous gift is important to the overall health and welfare of the Manteo community and ensures that Beach Club participants receive the support they need and are actively involved in the community they call home,” said Dr. Peggy Terhune, president and CEO.

Monarch states it is committed to supporting, educating and empowering people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, mental illness and substance use disorders to choose and achieve what is important to them. Monarch offers a variety of services and supports and promotes advocacy, awareness, education, training, employment and residential opportunities. Established in 1958, the organization provides support statewide in North Carolina to thousands of people and is nationally accredited by The Joint Commission.
