Providing opportunities for adults to experience life to the fullest.

Like many adults, people with disabilities seek a work-life balance. We empower adults with disabilities to design the kind of life that they want to live. While the St. Louis Arc supports people to find volunteer and employment opportunities, we also provide access to recreational and social activities. Our goal is for St. Louis Arc participants to be fully included and valued members of their community.
