History

The Arc of Greater Haverhill-Newburyport was formed in 1962 by a small group of concerned individuals and parents determined to improve services for their sons & daughters with developmental disabilities.

In 1998, after 37 years of providing only advocacy services, The Arc was approached by a small group of families concerned their only option upon completion of their educational programs was to place their sons and daughters in sheltered workshops. They enlisted us to help them develop an innovative flexible approach tailored to the unique needs of their children. Thanks to their dream, The Arc has experienced about 20 years of dynamic growth and development, and now support over 100 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
