The West Fund is named after Arlyn West. He was a local Lawrence man who was the father of an adult with a developmental disability. Arlyn left a memorial to The Arc of Douglas County to benefit our Special Needs Fund, which has been traditionally used to help men, women, and children who have developmental disabilities with miscellaneous and emergency costs.
