about us image


PARCA, Partners & Advocates for Remarkable Children & Adults, has been enriching the lives of people with developmental disabilities since 1952. Our programs are designed to create a feeling of extended family to help people live as independently as possible and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Our programs


Through PARCA's clothing donation program your donation of gently used clothing and small household items will go a long way toward helping PARCA continue to provide persons with developmental disabilities the support and guidance they need to live full, active and independent lives.
