2014 JRC Membership Drive


Dear Friend:

Every day, Jefferson Rehabilitation Center (JRC) makes a positive difference in our community thanks to the  hundreds of exceptional people we serve, our caring staff of over 625 employees, and our valued members who directly impact our influence at the State and National levels.

We are starting our membership drive for the 2014-15 year!  This is not a fundraising drive, but a request to  become a member to assist us in voting on key issues at NYSARC as the more members we have the greater voting power we have.  Additionally it provides us with a list of people who we can keep informed on issues in the provision of services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and ask for assistance in advocating with our local, state and national representatives.

The last several years have seen unprecedented change in regulations and the models of service.  Advocacy is more important than it has ever been as we try to ensure that the quality of life and the opportunities for growth and development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are not jeopardized.  For just $5.00 you can join the Jefferson Rehabilitation Center, A Chapter of NYSARC, Inc. and the 102,300 members throughout NYS to become the voice for the children and adults who need or will need services.  Last year we increased our membership to 671 and are hopeful to get over 1000 this year, which will allow us to increase our representation on the NYSARC Board of Governors.

Please support the JRC Membership Appeal by becoming a member, renewing your membership or making a  donation to support our programs.  If you would like more information about JRC, know someone interested in becoming a member, or would be interested in having us speak at an event or meeting; please send an email to or phone (315) 836-1260.

On behalf of JRC and the Board of Directors, we thank you for your support and consideration.
