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.

Upcoming Events

Devil’s Slide Ride

Pacifica , California

The Devil’s Slide Road Rides are back, featuring three routes which offer something for everyone, from semi-regular weekend riders to hard-core endurance cyclists and triathletes. The selected routes feature breath-taking coastal vistas, fearsome mountain climbs, rolling hills and winding back-roads. No matter which you choose, we guarantee that you’ll have a “devilishly” good time! The courses range in distance from 40 to 101 miles, with staffed, well-stocked aid stations located at regular intervals along the routes.

Proceeds from the event directly benefit PARCA whose programs help people with developmental disabilities lead more satisfying and independent lives.
