JARC is a non-sectarian, non-profit organization founded in 1969 by a group of parents concerned about the future of their children with developmental disabilities.
Today, JARC is known as a prototype for innovation, high-quality community-based residential and support programs, serving nearly 200 adults in its group homes and various supported independent living arrangements.
In 1998, JARC discovered a need in the community for support services for families who have a child with any disability still at home. Through the establishment of the Harris Children and Family Division, JARC is able to provide these services to several hundred families.
JARC’s Strategic Plan is a well-defined, formalized, realistic roadmap that will serve to guide our organization – now and in the years to come.
