Achievement, Enrichment & Lifelong Learning

The Arc San Francisco is a nonprofit service, education and career center for adults with developmental disabilities and their families living in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.

Started by parents over 60 years ago, we now serve more than 700 clients, providing vital postsecondary education, life skills, career, independent living, health and wellness advocacy and recreation services that empower our clients to achieve their highest potential and live a fulfilling quality of life.

From transitioning youth to middle age adults to those in their senior years, our programs offer both open and structured paths to achieving individual goals and aspirations. Our lifelong learning approach meets each person we serve wherever they are on their path to success, providing personalized support so that individuals at any stage of adult life can expand their skills, explore new horizons and connect to new life and career possibilities through a range of resources both on-site and in the community.

Visit one of our four campuses and discover how our services are changing and improving lives across the adult lifespan.

Partners in Action


The Arc San Francisco is proud to partner with AT&T to support people with developmental disabilities in improving their access to technology. Through a generous grant, AT&T is enabling The Arc to work with our clients to incorporate Individualized Technology Planning, helping them set goals that will assist with employment, education, health, and independent living.

The Arc San Francisco is leading a push for a lifelong learning model of support for young adults with developmental disabilities.  This means access to college or vocational training after leaving a public-school special education program.  All of it spells the need for better access to technology for this long-disadvantaged group.

Many thanks to our friends at AT&T for kick-starting this important effort.
