The Arc Jacksonville believes anything is possible. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are our partners in discovering possibilities for a fulfilled life. Together we unlock potential for achievement at home, at work, and at play. The Arc Jacksonville believes we all have the right to be in community and to make personal decisions about how we live, learn, work and play.
