We Depend On Your Kindness

Since 1965, EL ARCA has been an outpost for those with developmental disabilities and their families. We can no longer rely on government support and must receive monetary and volunteer contributions from the public. With your help we can continue to provide vital services to the community, and grow our reach throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
