The Arc Jacksonville has been championing the inclusion of persons with unique abilities since 1965. Beginning as a grassroots movement to provide educational opportunities, The Arc Jacksonville has been an innovative leader and pioneer of new approaches for 54 years, advocating for and serving individuals and their families.
Today, The Arc Jacksonville serves more than 500 adults each day, helping to answer “What’s Next?” We have continued to grow and evolve along with the changing needs and issues that individuals and their families face.
Program participants are empowered to take their next step in earning a living, education, creating a home, independence, recreation and community involvement. Through innovative programs, The Arc Jacksonville is on the front lines to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental differences and their families have the support and services they need to be fully engaged in their communities.
