Arc Family

As a parent, there is nothing more frightening than knowing your child has serious disabilities, yet living day to day without understanding how to help her. ARC changed our lives! Their staff immediately took us in and helped us with therapy and techniques to address her disabilities. For a family in our situation, there are no other organizations that can provide the care, expertise and resources ARC does. Simply put, their work is God's work to many families. 

ARC of Martin County has done amazing work for my family, with little funding available. When we came through their doors for the first time in 2007, it was hard to see even a light at the end of the tunnel for our son. ARC taught us how to work with him daily on social, physical, and academic accomplishments. Now, not only is he able to do tasks on his own, he is thriving in his school! He has truly been given new opportunities in his youth.
