Changing Lives, Changing Communities

On December 6th, 2010, the Climate for Freedom Award was presented to Minute Man Arc by the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council in recognition of its work on behalf of individuals of all ages with developmental disabilities and their families. The Climate of Freedom Award is given biannually to an organization within the Concord and Carlisle community for its work in promoting a climate of respect for individuals and their families; for providing a space where all individuals are valued and treated with dignity; and for recognizing that all have equal access to basic human rights.

Mission
Minute Man Arc is committed to enhancing the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities of all ages. We strive to enhance their includsion in the community, to maximize personal choice and decision-making and to support them in reaching their full potential in all areas of their lives.

The goal of all programs and services is to understand and support the interests and ambitions of each individual served as well as each family’s vision for their child or adult family member. Programs focus on integrating service delivery into homes, organizations, places of employment and local communities.

During the past year, more than 1,000 children, adults and family members received services from one or more of our programs.

The Agency relies on the support of our families, friends, communities and business partners to ensure quality service delivery. Minute Man Arc is only partially funded by state and federal dollars.

Our programs include:
– Early Intervention for infants and toddlers
– Family Services including: Family Support and Recreation for children and adults
– Adult Services including: Employment Services, Day Habilitation and Residential Services for adults
