The Arc is not just a place.

We are a collaborative community of participants, families, and Circles of Support working together for more than 70 years to provide accessible, inclusive services, and advocating for disability justice.

We partner with over 900 participants in SF, Marin, and San Mateo counties, offering adults a full range of programs and services, from Continuing Education and Workforce Development to Heath Advocacy, Art, Recreation, and more!

People with I/DD face lifelong barriers to inclusion in every aspect of their lives. We stand alongside Arc participants and take action to create change, led by the voices of people with I/DD. We are committed to lifting barriers to full inclusion for all because disability justice IS social justice.
