Founded in May 1969 as a summer camp, ARC Herkimer has grown into the premier provider of services for people with disabilities in Herkimer County, New York. With the support of many sponsors including the UpMobility Foundation, ARC Herkimer has continued to innovate to better help its members, including taking the unusual step of acquiring the Mohawk Valley Country Club in the spring of 2020.
Now called the MV Golf & Event Center, the former Mohawk Valley Country Club employs some of ARC Herkimer’s own residents—a testament to their belief in the power that work can have in the lives of developmentally disabled people. With its 18-hole golf course and restaurant as well as sizable event space, the MV Golf & Event Center has become an area hit. UpMobility Foundation has been closely involved in the development of the MV Golf & Event Center and we look forward to continuing our long relationship with ARC Herkimer as they enhance the lives of those with disabilities as well as lift up the community.
