Family Support Services
At the St. Louis Arc, families are our primary focus. We are committed to helping them connect to resources and become effective advocates for their loved ones. We are here for them every step of the way!
The St. Louis Arc offers a variety of casual networking opportunities for family members and caregivers. From coffee hour to Dad's Night Out, we've got everyone covered. We also hold a Family Organization Workshop Series, with seminars and presentations on the topics that are important to your family.
Sibshops are recreational support programs for siblings of children with developmental disabilities that meet monthly. Sibshops are open to children ages 6-11 and Teen Sibshops are open to youth ages 12-15. Pre-registration is required. To learn more call 314-817-2275 or to download a registration packet, click here.
Our Family Fun Nights are a fun way for entire families to connect and make new friends. Monthly events are held here at the St. Louis Arc Family Center and feature activities such as bingo, holiday parties and themed celebrations.
We offer a program called "Parents Learning Together," which helps parents learn the skills they need to safely and successfully raise their children.
