ARCA Spirit


Sixty years ago, a handful of Albuquerque parents wanted to ensure a bright future for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Today, ARCA has approximately 700 full and part time employees, working round the clock, creating opportunities for nearly 700 children and adults to live great lives. The history of ARCA is people. Families, friends and neighbors working together to find solutions to seemingly insurmountable challenges. ARCA staff, loyal and compassionate, mindfully assuring the health, safety and happiness of everyone in their charge. This is the ARCA Spirit.

ARCA was awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Albuquerque Journal, placing in the top five for New Mexico.
