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. It is also available to help with special needs to improve one’s life, such as an iPad, art lessons, or a gym membership for swimming. 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.


  • Living with their family or on their own
  • Someone in the family must have a documented intellectual/developmental disability
  • Maximum of $500 once per fiscal year
  • May not be in the autism waiver or DDA services with another DDA provider
  • Can be receiving DDA services if they are in limited services with The Arc Baltimore (not Community Living)
  • Must complete the referral form and provide proof of disability
  • The vendor must complete a W9 form (if not already in The Arc Baltimore system)
  • If the Family Fund is paying a portion of the total cost, you must provide info on how the balance will be paid (family contribution, grant, insurance, energy assistance, etc)
