“Many people who live in our community do not know what services these agencies provide, how to access them, or that they are eligible to receive help,” said Sharon Burns of Monarch. “We hope to change that.”

Monarch provides support and resources to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance abuse issues in 52 counties across North Carolina. Monarch is a nonprofit and is a charter member of the national organization known as The Arc.
