Driven by the success of the people we support
We strive to support people with developmental disabilities to live their best lives - whether they are finding success at their job, connecting with family and friends, or becoming engaged in their neighborhood. Here are just a few of the many success stories that fuel our mission!
There are four employees now from The Arc and they’ve done great. It’s been wonderful for our entire team to work with them as well. They make our workplace better.

Because of Gabby’s infectious smile and the way she engages with people, she has an innate ability to make even the most nervous patients feel comfortable.

The Arc gave us the opportunity to get to know the staff person that would support my granddaughter Tyieshia before she started. We got to see if she was the right match. We appreciate her. She is truly there for her.

“As a mom with two special needs children, it means everything to me that I have a place at The Arc where I can call for support, information or just talk about any issues that I’m having. They truly listen.”
