"Danny has benefitted from the programs at The Arc of San Diego since he was eight months old. As a baby, I brought him to Arc's Parent/Infant program. Not only did the program help Danny, but it also helped us as a family. It helped us to focus on what Danny can do and not so much on his diabilities.
Today, thanks to The Arc, Danny is a happy, productive member of the community and attends the program at The Sol and Ruth Gerber Family Center in Chula Vista. I'm grateful for the support that we receive."
