“We thought about Community Living Services for a while. We knew that this would be the best scenario for our son Matthew, and we were very confident that The Arc would meet those needs.”

- Mary Ann Powderly, Mother

“Because of the assistive technology I received from The Arc Baltimore, I’m able to go to work and school and live this beautiful life. The Arc truly changed my life.”

- Seth Burdine, Supported Person

“Over the last ten years, the environment at PDP has provided employees from The Arc a chance to be part of the working community. It gives them a sense of worth and pride that their contributions play an integral part in our process and success. They form relationships with the staff and become part of the PDP family. Furthermore, it educates our staff that people with disabilities are also people with abilities. This is a lesson that we hope can translate across all communities.”

– Brian Hartman, PDP Group

“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.”

- Brenda Dwyer, Parent

“Partnering with The Arc is a win-win situation. Reliability and enthusiasm are the two adjectives that I would use to describe our employees supported by The Arc. It has been a pleasure having these employees help us to grow our brands.”

- Garrett Pfeifer, CEO, MD-Brand

“After my husband passed away, I needed help to fill that role with my son Anthony. We both got a good feeling when we first met his Family Living staff Heather. She is very encouraging and helps him to come out of his shell and try new things.”

- Doris Hall, Mother

“I had lived with my grandmother for so long, and I was scared about getting my own apartment with support staff. The staff were very encouraging and helped me to find the best apartment that was close to my family and my job.”

- Paris Price, Supported Individual

“The employees that I work with all help me and support me to get done the things I need to do. They are like my family. I love my job.”

- Donna Motley, Supported Employee

“At the mom support group, I found out about Parent’s Day Out and thought to myself how great it would be to have four hours of kid-free time. We use it as often as we can and would recommend it to any interested parent.”

- Joce Casser, Parent
