Community Living News

Hello to all Community Living Staff:

Welcome to the Community Living News page where we will communicate more information with our staff. Because we are so large and dispersed across the community, communication has always been a big challenge for us. On this page, you can access important information and navigate through The Arc Baltimore’s site. We hope this will assist in providing more consistent and timely communications with everyone.

Thank you for the work each of you do every day!
