LARC has been awarded a grant from Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation to create a sensory garden behind the agency’s offices at 314 Main St., Torrington.
“The sensory garden will be an important part of LARC’s new Autism Resource Center as a place for programming, as well as respite for program participants, family members, staff, and guests,” according to a statement.
LARC has been awarded funding of $150,000.00 from the Robert Rosenheim Foundation for the creation and development of an autism resource center in Torrington. The funds will be paid out over three phases in a three-year period. “We are very happy to support the work that the resource center will provide to Litchfield County youth and their families,” noted Michael Samartino, board member of the Robert Rosenheim Foundation.
“LARC is deeply gratified for the support from the Robert Rosenheim Foundation,” said Michael Menard, LARC executive director. “This certainly is one of the most important projects for the city of Torrington and surrounding towns. We are honored to have the support of the foundation.” (click above link for full article)
