Minute Man Arc is the agency of choice for children and adults with disabilities in our region, providing a community of innovative, lifelong care. We achieve this by delivering exceptional therapeutic services, meaningful employment, supportive living opportunities, recreation, and active community involvement.
We were founded in 1958 under the name Minute Man Association for Retarded Children by a group of parents in search of services and community for their children with disabilities. Today Minute Man Arc supports more than 1,000 children and adults with autism, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other intellectual and physical disabilities. We accept individuals who are blind and/or deaf, providing them with staff members who are fluent in American Sign Language. Additionally, we serve people who have physical or emotional disabilities.
With over 65 years of experience, Minute Man Arc is a respected leader in both program development and service delivery. We are accredited or licensed by CARF International (formerly Council of Accredited Rehabilitation Facilities), the Department of Public Health, the Department of Developmental Services and the state Division of Early Education and Care. We collaborate regularly with the Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers, the Arc of Massachusetts, and other local human service organizations.
