    The Arc is proud to serve children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Anne Arundel County and the Eastern Shore. At The Arc, we customize our services to fit the person’s lifestyle, personality, and vision for themselves. We create opportunities for people with disabilities to live, work, and play where and how they choose. Over the course of the year, we have created 1,778 opportunities for people to live more independent, included lives, and have supported 2,282 people to self-direct their services.

    *Based on the number of people served in FY23, people receiving multiple services are counted more than once.
