St. Louis Arc Family Center

The St. Louis Arc is committed to supporting individuals with I/DD and their families as they pursue the lives they want and deserve. This training will help you become an advocate for yourself, the ones you care for, and all of those in the St. Louis area who cannot advocate for themselves. You will be empowered with information and motivation to help all people with disabilities succeed.
