about us image


Parca's mission is to enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families. Our programs are designed to create a feeling of extended family to help people with developmental disabilities live as independently as possible and enjoy all that life has to offer. We offer a wide range of programs and services including independent living skills training, family support and advocacy, respite care, child care and afterschool programs.
