health professionals. At the
same time, Joyce Keller was
named executive director.
"In 1978," says Keller,
"when I first came, we had
one group home, three
employees, and a $40,000
budget. We have grown con-
siderably since then but
nothing would have • been
possible without the tremen-
dous support and involve-
ment of the parents in star-
ting that first home."
Today, the Jewish Associa-
tion for Retarded Citizens
(JARC) as it is now called
(renamed in 1980) has ten
group homes, 130 employees
and a $3 million annual
budget. Additional pro-
grams include the Aaron
and Helen L. DeRoy In-
dependent Apartment Pro-
gram, two family assistance
programs, and its newest
venture, independent living
condominiums. Because of
the range of services and the
number of people it helps,
JARC has become a pro-
totype across the nation.
The ten group homes are
now all located in Oakland
County, and all are owned
by JARC. The homes were
purchased through major
donations toward a down
payment. Each home is
named for its benefactor.
The newest group home,
opened in West Bloomfield
last year, is barrier-free and
operates without a live-in
"County, state, and federal
sources provide $2.3 million
to JARC and the remainder
is raised through the
generous support and in-
volvement of this Jewish
community," says Keller.
"JARC is appealing because
it is very visible, and in-
tegrated into the communi-
Wachler agrees. "People
can see us and touch us and
know exactly where their
contribution is going. We
raised $700,000 this year."
Since his initial efforts,
Wachler has served as presi-
dent of JARC and is current-
ly chairman of the Endow-
ment Committee.
Today, JARC has a close
working relationship with
agencies of the Jewish
Welfare Federation and
United Community Ser-
vices, and has been a reci-
pient of grant funds from
the Max M. Fisher Jewish
Community Foundation
(funded by United Jewish
Charities). JARC, however,

is not a beneficiary of the
Allied Jewish Campaign or
the United Foundation.
Will JARC's ties to the
Jewish Welfare Federation
become even closer through
Federation funding?
Neither Wachler nor JARC
president Michael Feldnian
believe that will happen.
"Direct Federation fun-
ding for JARC is not prac-
tical," Wachler explained. "I
don't think JARC would go
for it because there are in-
herently some controls."
Feldman added, "I think
Federation would say we are
doing too well in that area
on our own:'
That's not to say that
the close ties between
JARC, Federation and
Detroit's Federation agen-
cies will not continue.
Feldman pointed out that
Wachler and JARC board
member Nora Barron are
co-chairing the Federation
Task Force on Services for
the Disabled, which also in-
cludes JARC board
members Sharon Alterman
and Feldman. The task
force is looking to see what
services are needed for
Detroit's Jewish disabled,
and eliminate any duplica-
tion of effort.
The task force is expected
to present an action plan,
hopefully within 12 months,
Wachler said, "and maybe
JARC will serve as a model
for the other disabled."
"The goal of JARC is to
provide a setting for our
clients in which they can
develop to their fullest
potential whatever that
may be, not only to provide
