Changing Perspectives. Changing Lives.
Since 1956, Arc Broward has worked hand-in-hand with our community, changing how people with developmental disabilities and life challenges are embraced and included. This critical work ensures that people with disabilities, not only live, learn, work, and play in their communities, but more importantly, thrive.
Arc Broward operates at 9 locations and provides 20 programs throughout Broward County, FL. Arc Broward’s two social enterprises — Arc Educates, and Arc Culinary — are groundbreaking efforts to transform the community by providing opportunities for people with disabilities and other life challenges to realize their full potential.
Arc Broward has maintained national accreditation status for more than 30 years. The process requires significant effort, strong teamwork, and a commitment at all levels of the organization to providing the highest possible quality services.
As a nonprofit organization, the agency relies on grants, individual and corporate contributions, and revenue generated through a broad range of contracts.
