ARC’s mission is to empower children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their fullest potential through residential, vocational, educational, behavioral and other healthcare services. ARC provides support and assistance to children and adults with a variety of challenges, including: intellectual disabilities, autism, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, epilepsy, and other related developmental disabilities. Through a full spectrum of programs and medical technology, ARC assists with education, skill training, community involvement, physical and behavioral therapy, and developing self-sufficiency for each and every individual. The ARC of Martin County was founded in 1956 with humble beginnings. At the time, resources to serve people with disabilities were nearly non-existent nationwide. The standard suggestion from doctors was to place a person with mental or severe physical disabilities into an institution. A group of local parents and concerned citizens wanted to provide educational and training opportunities for persons with disabilities. Their dream was that a handicapped person could not only survive in society, but flourish. With a passion for changing the status quo, ARC quickly grew into a vital resource not only for families, but for schools, employers, and the larger community. Today, ARC supports more than 500 children and adults and their families each month.
