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.
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. Find out more and schedule a donation pickup online.
