The donation was made in support of all those who participate in Arc’s programs, in honor of Alison Higginbotham, an active participant in several of those programs. Higginbotham, who has multiple developmental disabilities due to having had a rare seizure disorder called Infantile Spasms, attends Arc’s day program and also receives home and community-based waiver services through Arc. She is the daughter of Karen Cox and Danny Higginbotham and the stepdaughter of Larry Cox. The Coxes are members of ECA.

Arc of Acadiana provides services and programs throughout the Acadiana area for children and adults with developmental disabilities These include home and community-based waiver services, adult day programs, in-home care programs, and community group homes.

Arc resells Mardi Beads as its Annual Mardi Gras Bead Drive and holds its Annual Charity Golf Classic to fundraise and bring awareness to the organization.

ECA’s Community Outreach has two primary purposes: to allocate funds to local ministries that share the gospel and help those in need and to foster parishioner involvement with the same ministries it supports.
