ABOUT THE ARC OF CUMBERLAND AND PERRY COUNTIES
The lack of services for people with disabilities led a group of
parents to band together in 1953 to form The Arc of Cumberland and
Perry Counties (CPARC). For decades, children and adults with
disabilities were systematically denied educational opportunities,
vocational training jobs, housing, and almost every other right and
service that people without disabilities took for granted. Today,
our staff continues to advocate for people with disabilities; offer
tools and training to help families; and ensure that individuals
live, work, and play in their community.
We would not be able to achieve our mission to empower, inspire,
and educate people with intellectual and developmental
disabilities, their families, and the community without our staff.
Here at CPARC, we have a team-oriented culture where we work
together and treat each other like family. Because we value the
input of each employee, we have an open-door policy. We also offer
top compensation and benefits.
