Arcare: A Non-Profit Committed to Caring for Your Loved One
More than 35 years ago, a group of parents of children with disabilities gathered to ponder who would look after their loved ones when they no longer could. After all, these children had competent, reasonable coping skills but would be in need of a trusted support system to help them continue living normal lives. Unaware of any resources in existence, they decided to create their own solution to this abundant need.
Arcare, a certified 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1982 and designed to make certain that individuals with a disability would receive caring, planned, professional support throughout their lives. Initially, the focus was on developing full-service, long-term plans for each of its clients. Over time, the non-profit has added additional programs and core services tailored to meet each person’s needs and each family’s desires. Arcare serves individuals with all types of disabilities and is certified by the State of Kansas to act as a legal guardian and/or conservator for individuals with disabilities.
