RARA's mission to create better lives for adults with intellectual disabilities; to enhance and enrich their lives by providing activities promoting a successful leisure life. RARA is dedicated to improving quality of life, developing independence, increasing physical and emotional well being through social interaction for adults with special needs. In doing so we provide respite care for families and caregivers alike.
Lowell joins other communities across the country in celebrating the projects and activities funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Community Development including the Community Development Block Grant, the Home Investment Partnerships Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant Program. The organizations featured in this film (program/segment/whatever is appropriate) are supported in part by these federal programs to provide a variety of services for Lowell's most vulnerable populations. During CD Week, many of these organizations, along with community groups will host open houses and tours to showcase their programs to the public.
