The Arc of San Diego is the largest, most comprehensive provider of services for people with disabilities in San Diego County. Our organization was founded in 1951 by parents and other community members who were concerned about the lack of services available for people with disabilities and their families. The Arc provides services for persons with disabilities at more than 20 locations throughout the county. Through our programs we are able to offer support to people with disabilities in living independent and fulfilling lives.
The Arc of San Diego believes community integration provides the best environment for people with disabilities to learn practical skills and develop interpersonal relationships. We pave ways for independence through learning and accessing community resources.
