The Arc of San Antonio
The Arc of San Antonio was founded to create a network of support and services for their children with special needs. Throughout our history, The Arc has responded to the changing needs in our community by developing programs and partnerships that address the most critical issues facing people living with disabilities. Today, The Arc offers one of the largest continuum of services for children and adults with a broad range of developmental abilities.
We play a distinctive role among social service providers in San Antonio. Each year our case manager and support services connect over 1,200 children, adults and families to a wide range of resources for people with disabilities. The Arc serves as a gateway to community services for many individuals and families seeking assistance for the first time. We provide a continuing source of information, referral and support during times of transition or crisis
The Arc has two locations in San Antonio (13430 West Avenue, 78216, phone # (210) 490-4300) and (6530 Wurzbach Road, 78240, phone # (210) 682-4200). Each location offers extended hours for our childcare and day habitation for adults. We serve over 300 children and adults each day.
Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) is a statewide program for families and children up to age 3, with developmental delays, disabilities or certain medical diagnoses that may impact development. ECI services support families as they learn how to help their children grow and learn.
