The Annual Report of Giving
Charles River Arc
2007 Annual Report of Giving
Our Mission
Charles enhances the lives of people with intellectual
and other developmental disabilities by providing
a variety of individualized supports and services.
Through advocacy, Charles River Arc promotes the full
participation of the individuals we support in their
communities and upholds their civil rights.
“The Pursuit of Excellence”
Dear Friends,
We are beginning a new year with a new name: The Charles River Center! Over the past few years, we began to
see an increase of individuals on the autism spectrum participating in our programs. As a result, we enhanced
our services to meet their needs and it became increasingly more important for our name to reflect the
comprehensiveness of our agency. In addition, we intentionally omitted any words in our name that attaches
negative labels to the people we support.
Charles River Arc was founded more than 50 years ago by parents of children with Down syndrome. We continue
to provide strong programs for children and adults with mental retardation. In fact, many of these individuals are
now in their 40’s, 50’s, and even in our Seniors program. However, we are excited about our new name because
it demonstrates that we are truly inclusive, serving diverse populations. The Charles River Center is a remarkable
hub of activity and we will always be responsive to the needs of families in our area. Whether an individual has
an intellectual or developmental disability, we strive to be the very best that we can be. Our pursuit of program
excellence and clinical expertise will continue. Our compassion and commitment to families will continue. And we
will always embrace our mission—to enhance the quality of life by helping each and every person reach his or her
highest potential.
Many of our goals set out in our last strategic plan were accomplished including: residential expansion, renovations
to Dwight, applied behavior analysis training and certification for staff, creation of a quality assurance department,
licensure of all children’s programs by the Massachusetts State Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), and
many technology upgrades.
Going forward, our goals are equally ambitious. It is hard to believe but we are now exploring an expansion of the
Merritt Center. Our Therapeutic Day Programs are bursting at the seams and we want to accommodate all families
who need these services.
The Charles River Center is a special place with extraordinary people. To the Board of Directors, families, staff, and
many friends in the community, we extend our gratitude and appreciation for your generosity. Thank you for the
vital role you play in our success.

Inga Hildesheim Robinson
nga Hildesheim Robinson passed away on May 24,
2005 but she will be remembered fondly by all of us at
Charles River Arc.
Born in Hamburg, Germany and surviving the atrocities of
World War II, she immigrated to the United States in the
late 40’s for a better life. Here she met her husband, Albert,
and they settled first in Needham and then in Newton,
Massachusetts. In 1952, their son Frankie was born. He had
Down syndrome.
Strong willed and progressive in her thinking, she refused to
follow her doctor’s advice to place her son in an institution.
Instead, she sought other parents who shared the same goals
and who would help her create options for children like
Frankie so that they could become all that they could be
with a promising future.
According to Tom Sell, “it was soon after our move to
Needham that Inga was walking by our home with her oneyear-old baby son in his carriage. She recognized that our
six- year old Mary Lynn was retarded and stopped to tell us
that she had a similar situation. When I told her how Anne
and I had established a pre-school program in Pennsylvania,
she insisted we do it again in Needham.”
In February, 1956, fifteen parents met at the Sells’ home
to discuss plans for a pre-school class serving children from
Needham, Wellesley, Dedham, and Dover. This class for 12
children officially opened in April, 1956. Carter Memorial
Methodist Church donated class space; the program was
staffed by dedicated volunteers; and the cost to parents was
$1 per month. Charles River Parents Group for Retarded
Children was born.
Thanks to the courage, advocacy, and belief that all children
can learn and live in their communities, Inga and Albert
Robinson, Tom and Anne Sell, and other parents joined
forces to begin Charles River Arc more than 50 years ago.
Stephen and Helen Ingle, Inga’s cousins, remember her as
always upbeat with a wonderful sense of humor. According
to Stephen, “she was generous and sweet but she could
be tough and strong-minded. An incredibly brave and
enlightened woman, she loved Frankie dearly and was always
an advocate for him.”
Frankie, one of Charles River Arc first program participants,
worked at Dwight and lived in one of our group residences
until his death in 1998. “Frankie was a lot of fun and
always came to work with a big smile,” recalls John Grugan.
“In spite of many medical issues, he wanted to work and
enjoyed earning a paycheck even more.”
This past fall, Charles River Arc received a charitable
gift from Inga’s estate. “Charles River Arc was always an
important part of her life,” says Stephen. “She was fulfilled
knowing that Frankie had a meaningful life. He was
employed and had a wonderful circle of friends. This gift is
a testament to her faith in Charles River Arc and that the
organization is successful and doing a lot of good.”
We extend our utmost gratitude to Inga who was
instrumental in making Charles River Arc what it is today
and for her unwavering confidence in our organization by
making a gift to us through her will.
To make a gift through your will or to discuss other giving options,
please contact Maria McTernan, at 781-972-1001 or [email protected]
