As a not-for-profit organization, the St. Louis Arc relies heavily on the support of volunteers. We are grateful to the more than 1200 individuals and groups who volunteered last year. Recently, we asked several of our volunteers to talk about their time working with people with disabilities through the St. Louis Arc.
