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.
 

 

Volunteer

Touching Lives In A Vital & Meaningful Way!
 
The ARC of Martin County offers Rewarding Opportunities for Volunteers who are willing to enhance the lives and opportunities of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
 
Develop talents, gain experience, and most of all play a vital role in helping people with disabilities achieve their goals, dreams and desires for a full and productive life. 
 
Who makes a good volunteer?
 
Volunteers are a unique group of people who have committed themselves to the mission of an organization.  They have zeal and a passion for making a difference and they can do more for an organization than the most efficient staff.  A volunteer must be zealous, dedicated, tireless, hopelessly optimistic and steadfast in character and integrity.  Who makes a good volunteer? 
 
YOU DO!
 
 The ARC of Martin County Wants To Make The Best Use Of Your Time And Talents!
 
Let the ARC provide you with the training and support necessary to make your volunteer experience educational and rewarding.
 
What Commitment Is Expected Of A Volunteer?

  • Only volunteer for duties that you are qualified or willing to perform.
  • Inform the ARC if your schedule or hours of availability changes.
  • Be pleasant, polite and helpful with others at all times.
  • Participate in training as it is offered.
  • Follow through on commitments.

In many cases, especially if you will be working directly with the children or adults we support, volunteers will be required to complete a criminal background check prior to commencing their volunteer assignments.
