This is ridiculous! This may be from someone who has been fired from their job, and needs revenge.
GET THE FACTS RIGHT! You are not correct.
DITTO to the person speaking on 11/14...
The state of NY should be proud and compassionate job that the ARC does. It is a wonderful organization!
We all have seen Marygrace Welch-Ellis and her colleagues give 100% always. Just ask the people who they care for and who they work with.

The ARC is a great organization and helps a lot of people . On the other hand there management sucks and needs re-staffing. I got to say not all there employees are bad but the bad ones really do give the company a bad name. And for MG nice lady and does a lot for the agency but has a bad drinking problem. That’s one reason she is not the town constable of Clinton anymore

I am proud of all the ARC workers for being on the computers while at work. They really do care for the residents.

White Cracker - and how do you know this? As stated by Leopard "Get the facts" do you have personal knowledge or are you just a gossip? WTF how do you know ARC workers are the ones responding and IF they are how do you know it is while they are at work. So far all I have observed is supposition and false innuendo bordering on Libel, which by the way is a prosecutable offense. The initiator of this entire Blog against the ARC and its employees was terminated from HIS position, makes one wonder.

I am a former employee of the ARC who did get fired. I worked at many houses that they owned and know what was going on and that nothing was getting done about it. I had made many complaints and where did they go? NO WHERE. Why? Because the HR department is ran by a bunch of corrupt individuals who don’t want Angela to know what’s really going on in residential services. I myself have found many bags of marijuana on the floor then gave it to the manage on duty and told the program manages about it and nothing ever had happened to anyone. I went to one house to work as an awake overnight and had noticed that the manager on duty popped all the pills for the next morning that night and put them in cups so he didn’t have to do it in the morning. I called on call that night and they sent someone over to check and that person never got in any trouble. I think they still work for the agency. I was stupid at the time because I should have just called the cops on some of theses clowns and let them deal with it. Sure I would have got fired but think what a lawsuit I would have had. For MaryGrace I paid and did a background check on her.

White Cracker, I can see YOU FEEL there may be some valid concerns regarding ARC employees. However, accusations without proof are simply - unsubstantiated accusations, which anyone can make about any person. Making such accusations without viable proof can be a prosecutable offense in New York State. IF, you have proof, are you acting upon it? Have you notified the local authorities,District Attorneys Office, consulted with an attorney? Did you know congress recently passed a law protecting "Whistle Blowers" from being fired. As for Mary Grace, I am a life long resident of the Town of Kirkland and have been very active in local government. As trivial as this may seem. Mary Grace was not a town constable. She had been a member of the Clinton Village Board. That position was an ELECTED position. Once elected to the Board she was appointed Police Commissioner, which basically meant she was the liaison between the Village Board and the Police Dept. The reason Mary Grace was no longer a Board member/Police Commissioner was she choose not to run for re election. End of story. Your previous accusation is entirely false and may be construed as defamation of character. As with any accusation there are always two sides to every story. Should you feel you were treated unjustly I suggest you prove so by using legitimate legal means and not by post inflammatory and possibly libelous statements on this idiotic website. Which by the way I will no longer be part of. It is frankly a piece of crap that serves no purpose.

Vandergoof and Faith Burke are a pathetic joke.

The only intelligent thing they have done is change the name of this organization.

They changed it from ARC too ARC.

Retards taking care of retards.

Med errors are hidden and supervisors fix them by either missing a dose or marking it given, the
organization is great,but the trash that run it
are pathetic.

Work for these idiots and see for yourself what goes on behind closed doors.

As a member of the 'trash' and 'idiots' that work for the Arc, I just wanted to say that I am absolutely appalled by how some people have so little self-worth that they need to come on a public forum to try to defame respectable people just to make up for their own short-fallings. For all those named on this site, I commend you on the great job you do at the Arc...which many people are apparently too blinded by ignorance to see! You all work very hard to provide a high quality of life for the individuals we work together to serve. I for one would do anything for the individuals as well as the staff that I work with, and I know that many of you would say the same.

One thing that people need to understand is that those who work in the human services field don't do so for the money or to make a name for themselves. They do so because they care, they're compassionate, they love others... Its a shame that thoughtless, ignorant people try to destroy that in others. I wish people were more like our individuals. Maybe then they could see the good in people and in every situation in life, rather than dwelling on a corrupt world that they've created in their own head. You better be careful, becuase in the end, you're really just hurting yourself. I'm sorry for the self-pity and sadness that you must live in everyday. I can only hope that your life will improve, because I don't think that you can sink any lower.

I'm with Shadow. This is a pointless sight that I will no longer return to. Instead I will focus my energies on caring for the individuals that I love.

No where, in your incoherent babbling can you prove what goes on in every house,or can you prove that every person that is employed
shares your belief.

But we would like to thank you for letting us know you care and that theses people have a great person who can give them the care they deserve. I commend you on your efforts.Its too bad that everyone did not follow in your footsteps. But I have seen first hand some of the politics,and lies, so no matter what you say,
can it change the fact you are not in every house at every minute
of everyday.

You can only speak for yourself and not for anyone else.

Again ,bless you.

WTF you may want to start using spell check and grammar check. It appears you may have some knowledge of practices occurring in ARC homes that are possibly detrimental to the residents.If this is true, what have you done to correct these conditions?(other than bitch about it on this site) You state "alot of people would be in jail now" that statement implies laws are being broken. Do you not feel a moral,ethical and legal responsibility to report these conditions. It would appear to me IF you felt strongly enough about the residents you would be using any and all means available to rectify any adverse or illegal activities affecting their care. Using this website is NOT one of those means. I also agree with Shadow, this site is for crybaby's and illiterates who are afraid or to lazy to take control of their owns lives and responsibilities. They use this site to bitch and complain about others rather than try and make a difference in the world.

To employees, most of your cell phones have a
sound recorder, get to know how it works,and if something is being done that you feel is wrong,record it.

If you catch a error,or med error, turn your recorder
on before you tell someone,then tell,so this way when they say to hide it you have it on tape.

Remember,most of the clients can not speak for themselves,its up to you.
