Meet Rachel Lenzsch,
New Program Director

Howdy! My name is Rachel Lenzsch and I am honored to be the new Program Director for The Arc of Fort Bend County.

I am a Texas A&M graduate with a deep passion for creating an inclusive environment for individuals of all abilities, so that they feel empowered and celebrated for who they are.

After graduation I went to Peru and lived there for six months volunteering for the nonprofit, Live Simply for Peru. My days were dedicated to serving a local orphanage for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I came back to Texas with a vision of implementing programs that create an inclusive community for those transitioning from the educational system into society.

While at Texas A&M, I was a part of the nonprofit, Young Life Capernaum, where I served two years as a volunteer leader. I was given the opportunity to pursue real and meaningful friendships with high school students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

For the past six summers, I have worked at Camp Blessing Texas-a Christian camp for children and adults with disabilities giving them an all-inclusive, typical, camp experience. I served on the leadership team at Camp Blessing where I developed and implemented camp programs.

I look forward to serving and becoming part of the Fort Bend County community as I facilitate Special Olympics, TwentySomething, and all the other wonderful programs available through The Arc.  I consider it a privilege to be part of The Arc’s team that shares the same passion to have young adults of all abilities fully immersed in our community.
