For over seven decades, The Arc San Francisco has woven a tight-knit community of participants, families, and Circles of Support, unified by a common goal: advocating for disability justice. This isn’t just an organization, but a vibrant ecosystem where inclusivity thrives, and accessibility isn’t just a principle but a practice. With a steadfast commitment to disability justice, The Arc San Francisco continuously breaks down barriers, enabling individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to lead fulfilling lives.
The Arc San Francisco’s expansive reach extends across San Francisco, Marin, and San Mateo counties, connecting with over 900 participants. Its array of programs and services is as diverse as the community it serves. From Continuing Education and Workforce Development to Health Advocacy, Art, and Recreation, the organization offers an inclusive platform where adults with I/DD can engage, learn, and flourish. Each service is meticulously designed to promote growth, independence, and fulfillment among its participants.
However, the journey doesn’t stop at providing services. The Arc San Francisco stands as a pillar of strength against the lifelong barriers to inclusion that people with I/DD face. Driven by the voices of its participants, the organization works relentlessly to create lasting change. It advocates for their rights, amplifies their voices, and paves the way for a world where disability justice is a given, not a goal.
The Arc San Francisco invites you to be a part of this empowering community. Whether you’re an individual seeking services, a family member, or an ally in the pursuit of disability justice, your contribution matters. Join us as we work towards a future where disability justice IS social justice, where every individual, regardless of their abilities, can thrive in an inclusive society. After all, it’s in unity that we find our strength and in diversity that we find our richness.
