ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Arc, a United Way member that supports people with developmental disabilities, announced Monday that Meghan Stewart was promoted to assistant director of Family Support and Support Services.
Stewart begins her new position January 2. She joined the Arc in 2005 as Family Organization facilitator. The St. Louis Arc Family Organization offers an opportunity to families of people with developmental disabilities to build their informal support networks by meeting with other families for informative meetings and seminars. Together, we work to help families gain the kind of knowledge and advocacy skills that will result in positive change for their family member and for the community-at-large.
She is currently finishing work on obtaining her master’s in social work (MSW) from Washington University.
Within her new role, Stewart will report to Mark Keeley, vice president of Support Services, and be responsible for overseeing the family support services, which include: respite, the Family Organization, information and referral, and Sibshops.
Founded in 1950 by a group of activist parents who wanted more for their children with mental retardation, the St. Louis Arc has a long tradition of advocacy and respect for the rights of people with developmental disabilities—from its earliest work in opening education and recreation opportunities to today’s commitment to high-quality, person-centered programs and services. For the past 57 years, the St. Louis Arc has offered a wide array of services, including residential, employment, leisure, respite, family support, early intervention, prevention and advocacy.
