Welcome to The Arc of South Florida

“Protecting and providing for the needs of the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities”.

The Arc of South Florida is a local chapter of The Arc, one of the largest volunteer organizations in the U.S. Founded in 1953 by a group of concerned parents. The Arc of South Florida serves the over 60,000 Miami-Dade County citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Though still governed by volunteers through the Board of Directors the Arc of South Florida has grown into a major community agency, providing a variety of programs and services that affect hundreds of participants, their families and the community each and every day.


The Arc of South Florida is thrilled to introduce Job-a-Palooza!

This is the ultimate ‘speed-jobbing’ experience and will be at the Doubletree by Hilton – Miami Airport Convention Center on September 15th, 2018 from 9AM to 4PM.
