Thirty-seven members of Reynolds & Rowella's staff from offices in New Canaan, Ridgefield and Wilton moved the offices of the Western Connecticut Association for Human Rights to a new location in Danbury during a Day of Caring.
WeCAHR is a nonprofit organization advocating for people with disabilities. Since its founding in 1985, Reynolds & Rowella's mission has been, in part, to make a difference for people living in local communities and where the firm has offices. Reynolds & Rowella's efforts on behalf of WeCAHR represents close to 300 hours of donated time.
Reynolds & Rowella began its Day of Caring in 2010, and has since volunteered services on behalf of the Danbury Women's Shelter and Amos House. For 2012, the selection of WeCAHR was made several months ago, and the firm has worked closely with Shirley Ricart, WeCAHR's executive director, to coordinate the moving and transportation of office furniture and equipment into the new location. WeCAHR was founded in 1977 by a group of parents seeking advocacy for their children with disabilities. The agency now offers advocacy and support for individuals, families and friends of people with disabilities of all ages. WeCAHR is an affiliated chapter of Arc of Connecticut.
