PARC has been providing opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities for over 68 years. Using a “person-centered” approach, PARC provides programs and services helping those exercise their independence and experience life to the fullest. Today PARC serves over 600 individuals, focusing on gaining new experiences and living the quality of life deserved by all.
Advocacy, housing, education, collaboration and community engagement are just some of the many examples in which PARC makes a positive contribution to community life. PARC helps children and adults focus on what they can do rather than what they are unable to do. As an organization and a community, we share a powerful belief that all persons can experience life to the fullest. We are PARC, Providing Advocacy and Recognizing Capabilities.
We are known as a progressive leader in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Driven by the vision of a community where all individuals live with dignity and are treated with respect, PARC is truly dedicated to ensuring that children and adults, no matter what their capabilities, are valued and appreciated as unique and valued individuals.
