The Arc provides a variety of programs to help parents who are raising a child with a disability.
The Arc can help connect parents to support professionals via its Community Connectors program. The Arc recruits and hires support professionals and then matches them with families so they can help support children and youth both at home and in the community.
In addition, The Arc also provides peer support to parents through Families Connected. Families Connected is one of ten family networks in the state of Oregon designed to help families in their journey of raising a child with special needs.
