JARC 50th Anniversary Celebration

Fifty years ago, the musical group Earth Wind & Fire was founded and JARC opened its doors. Fittingly, JARC celebrated its 50th anniversary at the Fisher Theatre with a concert performed by the legendary group. Rob Colburn and Howard Luckoff served as co-chairs for the event which raised $1.5 million for JARC. The non-profit agency serves 200 individuals with developmental disabilities in 80 locations. JARC provides 24-hour care in group homes and independent living settings for adults, and respite services within the family home for children, teens, and young adults.
