Your Donations Make A Difference


“Many families in the Spanish-speaking community are not aware of available services for children with disabilities.  Arc helped us understand and the steps we needed to take.  We want Alison to be able to do things on her own.  She may have special needs, but we want her to move forward with anything she can do.”
-Edith Calderon Cuevas
