ADA 25th Anniversary

Americans with Disabilities Act 25th Anniversary

ADA 25th AnniversaryJuly 26 marks the 25th year anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Since its passage in 1990, the ADA has become America’s prominent national policy statement affecting the lives of people who have disabilities. This landmark law prohibits discrimination against and provides civil rights protection to persons who have disabilities in the areas of employment, public services, public accommodations and telecommunication services.

Marc is proud to be an advocate and participating member of this movement that aims to provide individuals who have disabilities the same opportunities as everyone else. Marc’s continued efforts to create avenues that clear the way for these individuals to participate in the mainstream of American life is our ultimate goal.

John Moore, President & CEO

You may have heard that Randy Gray retired on June 30, 2015 after 40 years of service at Marc Community Resources, Inc. (Marc) and that I will take over the position of President & CEO. A natural question to ask is, “who is this John Moore and how will this transition impact Marc?”

To answer this two-part question, let me start with who I am. In terms of credentials, I have an accounting degree, a CPA license, a finance MBA and have over 30 years of audit, accounting and finance experience. Since 2001, I have been Marc’s Chief Financial Officer, working closely with Randy Gray, Marc’s board of directors and both program and support leadership.

In terms of leadership transition, while this is clearly an historic event in the life of our agency, don’t expect dramatic change. Marc is a CARF-accredited and nationally recognized agency that, thanks to a compassionate and dedicated workforce, has a great reputation with state funding sources such as the Division of Developmental Disabilities and Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care. My goal is to find new and innovative ways to further enhance our services and outcomes in ways that create a distinctive identity in the eyes of our service recipients, families, communities and funding sources.
