About Arc

It started out as an idea in 1953 by a group of concerned parents.  Originally known as the Association for Retarded Children, a small, but extremely determined gathering of parents organized and implemented an action plan as a means of helping each other and their children affected by mental retardation and related developmental disabilities.  Slowly, limited education services were initiated with the determination of parents-volunteers leading the efforts.

Now known as Arc of Greater New Orleans, the organization and its services have flourished over the years to now serving some 1000 children and adults in Jefferson, Orleans and St. Bernard Parishes.  Arc provides various services throughout the entire community including Early Intervention, Family Services Coordination, Respite, Personal Care, Employment/Habilitation and Supported Living assistance.
