Member Testimonials

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of your hard work. You do an amazing job at researching, interpreting, and sharing information for ARRM providers.  I love how you are able to relay the information in such a clear and concise manner.

-Patty Johnson -Quality Assurance Project Manager, Residential Services Inc. (RSI)


"ARRM offers member organizations a substantial return on investment. From policy making to professional development, networking to stakeholder relationships, ARRM has been and continues to be at the forefront of the disability community, and the place we turn to for support."

-Terri Williams, CEO, Mains'l Services


"I appreciate the legislative lobbying that is done to make business easier for providers and assure quality services are being provided for individuals with disabilities." 

-Angie Hart, Consulting and Training Services Director, STAR Services


"We genuinely value our membership with ARRM. Our delivery on our mission is strengthened through our collaboration with other ARRM members. Our investment of staff time in ARRM activities directly impacts public policy, which in turn, directly impacts supports for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. ARRM is a vital association for private disability service providers."
-Julie Manworren, President & CEO, Living Well Disability Services (formerly Dakota Communities)


"The majority of our services are provided in Iowa, but we have a location in Albert Lea MN.  I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time you spend every Friday to help keep us up to date with 245D and other issues in Minnesota.

I took over as the Director about 2 and ½ years ago and all of my experience has been in Iowa.  You don’t know what a help it has been to be able to participate in the First Friday phone calls and the ARRM Answers. I feel like I have a better understanding of Minnesota rules and expectations and can do a better job as a supervisor ensuring we are in compliance with Minnesota regulations.

I have great staff in our Albert Lea office and feel very comfortable that they are on top of all the changes, since they also participate in the phone calls and have attended your trainings. "
