MRC Industries

MRC Industries, Inc. serves individuals living with developmental or learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, emotional impairments and mental illness.  In 2008, their facility was flooded by heavy September rains and they were forced to move into temporary quarters.  With an energetic staff and a Board willing to embrace uncertainty, MRC launched the “Independence and Dignity Through Work” campaign in 2009, raising $1.5 million to purchase and renovate an old manufacturing warehouse.  Opening the new facility was exciting and humbling as hundreds of MRC clients and their families celebrated.
