At The Arc San Francisco, we know a lot about developmental disabilities. But we know even more about big dreams. About the dignity of work. The pride of self-reliance. And the power of a community that works together to lift everyone up.

For over 60 years, our lifelong learning approach has empowered every individual we support to achieve success at their own work, at life...even in love. We invite you to discover how our innovative programs are transforming lives while enriching all of us in the community. Let's get together on this. Let's dare to dream.


Program participants can choose a single path or program (Adult Life & Skills, Employment Development, Careers & Advancement), or a combination that works best for his or her lifepath and goals. Revisit coursework, learn new skills or reinforce others at any stage of adulthood.


Our services support a community life that is independent, healthy and engaged through our Residential, Health & Wellness and Seniors Services. Plus Friends Like Me is the place to be for afterhours recreation and socialization with peers and friends.
