Who We Are

Arc participants in front of the Howard campus location.

The Arc SF is a person-centered organization engaged to partner with, support, and amplify voices of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

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.
