PARCA, which stands for “Partners & Advocates for Remarkable Children & Adults,” has been enriching the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families since 1952. Our programs are designed to create a feeling of extended family to help people live as independently as possible and enjoy all that life has to offer.
PARCA’s philosophy is that all people have the same value and same rights, and we’re committed to creating opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to experience choice, control and individuality in every area of their lives.
PARCA programs benefit clients at all stages of their lives–from after-school programs to helping them master independent living skills in adulthood–thus boosting their chances of leading satisfying, comfortable, safe, dignified, healthy and happy lives. Parents receive support, advocacy and information from the moment they learn they’re going to have a baby with disabilities.
Through the support of caring, engaged and compassionate people like you, who sign-up for the trail runs or donate to PARCA, we’re able to continue to provide vital services to this most-deserving and remarkable community.
