“Arc of Acadiana is an organization of dedicated people working tirelessly to improve the quality of life for our children. Not only are they concerned with the welfare of our children, but are also committed in helping them live as independently as possible. Arc of Acadiana has certainly made a positive difference in my family’s life!”

Residential Group Home Client's Parent

“Arc of Acadiana’s Day Program has given Ashlee a sense of belonging in the community and she loves her job. Ashlee is more confident and independent because of the support she receives from the staff at Arc.”

Ashlee’s Mother

“We have peace of mind knowing that Carol is in an engaging environment during the day rather than at home with little to do. He gets to be with his friends doing activities that he likes at Arc. It would break his heart and ours if he were not able to attend Arc of Acadiana’s day program.”
