Health and Human Service Organization Provides Life-Changing Advocacy and Support to Underserved Population
The Arc Baltimore was founded in 1949 by a group of eight concerned parents who wanted to provide support and services to the intellectually and developmentally disabled adults and children in the Baltimore metropolitan area. Over the last 60+ years, the Arc Baltimore has grown into an organization with 800 employees that offer community-based services to more than 6,000 men, women, children, and their families.
Today, the Arc Baltimore provides resources such as employment training, daytime and residential support, education, specialized foster care, advocacy, and respite care for the community it serves. It is one of the largest and most respected organizations of its kind and has been recognized by the Maryland Association of Nonprofit Organizations for dramatically improving the quality of life for intellectually and developmentally disabled adults and children. It is also certified by CARF International, an organization that provides accreditation to groups that meet the highest standards in the health and human service fields.
“All of our employees are dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities get the support they need to live, work, and have fun!” said Director of Information Technology, Christian Ehrhardt.
