The Arc of New Jersey Heroes of 2020

Christiana Frimpong Manso

Christiana Frimpong Manso

Nominated by Kevin and Sally O'Brien

Christiana has always been a devoted, dedicated and caring group home supervisor in the years she has worked at Martine Group Home at The Arc of Union. Since the onset of COVID-19, she has become so much more. Our sister Caroline was hospitalized for five weeks due to COVID-19 in April and May. When she returned to Martine we were not able to see her or take her home, which we usually do often. Christiana became Caroline's family, friend and mentor during this difficult time. And Caroline is not alone, her three housemates have also benefitted from Christiana's attention and love. Although we can only see Caroline in person on a very limited basis, we are content knowing that she and her housemates are in the terrific hands of a loving and caring Group Home Supervisor and her outstanding staff. We cannot thank them enough for all that they do - and for so much that is above and beyond the call of duty!
