Dear Friends,

It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that The Arc San Francisco Board of Directors announces the departure of Dr. Glenn Motola as CEO of The Arc San Francisco, effective November 17, 2017.

Since 2011, Glenn has played a critical role in improving the services that support our clients and families. While we will miss his inspiring leadership, we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor as the CEO of the Rehabilitation Center of Southern California. We want to thank him for the 6 years of dedicated service which involved many significant accomplishments, including expanding our Path to College program, increasing client internships and employment, open two new client residential sites, and reorganizing our Health and Wellness services to address more complex client needs.

Most importantly, Glenn leaves us with a solid Strategic Plan which is well underway as a roadmap for the years ahead to continue improving the programs and services our clients, families and communities count on.

Stepping in as Interim CEO is former Arc board member Connie Tabas, a lawyer, nonprofit leader and parent of an Arc client. Connie will work closely with the board and longtime senior managers as we conduct our search to find the new Arc SF CEO. It is our priority to find the best individual to lead, while still maintaining our quality services and a stable and effective organization. Our Board Search Committee anticipates the search to be a few months, and we will be providing updates of our progress on our website.

We thank Glenn for his leadership, and we are excited for the next chapter of The Arc San Francisco as we continue to advance our mission of transforming the lives of those we serve.

We also thank our esteemed friends who provide unwavering support for our work, amplifying our impact through your advocacy and generosity.

If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact Marti Sullivan directly at or at 415.255.7200 x119.

Thank you.

Board of Directors, The Arc San Francisco
