Arc s two-fold purpose is to ensure the rights of all persons with developmental disabilities through ongoing advocacy, and to provide specialized programs and services to help individuals lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. Its ultimate goal is to help these individuals attain an improved quality of life by providing opportunities that will allow them to not only live and work independently, but ultimately to make a real contribution to their communities.
The Arc of South Florida, Inc. is a local chapter of The Arc, one of the largest volunteer organizations in the U.S. Founded in 1953 by a group of concerned parents, The Arc of South Florida serves the over 1000 Miami-Dade County citizens with developmental disabilities. Though still governed by volunteers through the Board of Directors, The Arc of South Florida has grown into a major community agency, providing a variety of programs and services that affect hundreds of participants each and every day.
