The Central Aroostook ARC  is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded in 1959. Today, we offer a wide range of services to people of all ages. To this day, a committed Board of Directors guides Central Aroostook ARC.
Fifty-one percent of the Directors are parents or siblings of the people in our  programs. We could not exist without the support of our local communities, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, the United Way of Aroostook and other charitable organizations, the Department of Education and the Aroostook County Commissioners.

Central Aroostook Arc's Children Supports Program
Central Aroostook Arc’s Children Supports Program has been developed to provide support and assistance for children who have cognitive impairments and functional limitations.  The program includes services to families with children who reside in Aroostook County under the age of 21.  The program works with children in their homes and approved community settings to enhance the child's independence in social development, physical development, personal safety and functional life skills to include activities of daily living.
