Become a Friend

Become a Friend

Private philanthropy is the cornerstone of our work. The Arc relies on the generosity of local businesses, organizations, foundations, and individuals to strengthen our services, develop new initiatives, and ensure the highest quality care for people with disabilities. 

Last year, with the support of friends like you, The Arc provided information, personalized care, and community-based programming to 4,562 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism.

This year, we invite you to Become a Friend of The Arc of the South Shore! One of the greatest honors in this world is being able to call someone your friend. Showcase your commitment to The Arc's mission of empowering people with disabilities by joining our new Become a Friend campaign today.
