Northeast Arc

Northeast Arc

The Salem State University Alumni Association has teamed up with Northeast Arc to adopt a house right near campus on Linden Street. The Northeast Arc is a non-profit, 501(c)3, disability service organization whose grassroots foundation was built by a small group of parents, siblings and individuals in the 1950's. Through our alumni association, members gather once a month to have dinner with these residents while developing relationships with them. Members will take the residents to a variety of activities including sporting and theater events at Salem State University. The members also help with day-to-day repairs that need to be fixed throughout the house along with a snow removal program where students from Salem State University will come down to their house and shovel the sidewalks and stairs for them.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact chair Mikki Wilson ’09 at mikkiwilson@gmail.com or Sean Morrow at smorrow@salemstate.edu.
