Contra Costa ARC exists to enhance and enrich the lives of children with special needs and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Toward that end we provide direct services and advocacy to assist those we serve in achieving their highest level of personal independence and self-sufficiency.
Contra Costa ARC was incorporated in 1965, and since then we’ve become a leader in the field, supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are known for providing high quality, cost-effective services. We serve over 1,000 children and adults in Contra Costa County every day.
