Family Fund

The Arc Baltimore Family Fund is used by outreach staff to assist people with developmental disabilities or their families. As a flexible resource, the fund can be used for crises such as eviction prevention or utility turnoff, as well as needs not covered by insurance like some therapies, eyeglasses, wheelchair ramps, or other therapeutic equipment, games or activities such as horseback riding. It is also available to help with special needs to improve one’s life, such as camps, art lessons, or a gym membership for swimming. Other uses for the fund include - initial replacement funding up to $200 per child for clothes, toiletries, and outerwear. The fund can be used for car seats, pack n' plays, side rails for beds and emergency medical funding for copays and medications. The fund is comprised of contributions from individual donors, staff, and grants. People with disabilities or their families can apply, or referrals from other service agencies may be accepted.
