Support The Arc of Florida
Your donations to The Arc of Florida go directly to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
If you prefer to make your gift via check, please mail it to 2898 Mahan Drive, Suite 1, Tallahassee, FL 32308.
Your generosity helps give people with disabilities an opportunity to be fully included in all aspects of their community.
The Arc of Florida supports the people we serve to advocate for their choices and to make decisions about their lives. We host events, meetings and conferences for self-advocates, their families and caregivers to learn about state and community disability resources, and engage with lawmakers at Florida’s Capitol in Tallahassee. Donations are used to pay for travel expenses so Floridians with I/DD can advocate for themselves at The Capitol. As an example, during the 2013 Florida Legislative Session, self-advocates successfully changed a state law by organizing the End the R-word in Florida campaign. The Intellectual Disabilities Bill, passed unanimously by legislators and signed into law by the governor, removes the phrase “mental retardation” from state statutes and replaces it with “intellectual disabilities.”
Everyone desires a healthy smile and your donations to The Arc of Florida helps provide critical dental care for Floridians with I/DD. The Arc of Florida recruited dentists at 120 practices across the state to perform x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, fillings, root canals, crowns, extractions and dentures for self-advocates who can’t afford dental care.
