ARC of South Florida

Our History

The Arc of South Florida was founded in 1953 by a group of parents who were concerned about the lack of adequate programs and denial of basic dignities to children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Today, the organization employs more than 100 professionals who serve over 500 program participants daily. The Arc of South Florida continues to act as the voice for all persons in South Florida with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our Mission

The Arc of South Florida is a non-profit organization with a two-folded purpose:

  • To ensure the rights of all persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities through effective advocacy,
  • To provide specialized programs and services to help clients lead meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Our Vision

The Arc of South Florida will be the premier provider of services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We will be an advocate for diversity of opportunities, enhancing individual life choices as a member of the community.

Colonial Christian School

Colonial Christian School has been serving the children of the Homestead community since 1970. Our school currently serves 310+ children in grades K3 to 12 and offers them a distinctly Christian education.   We begin our day with prayer and Bible study, and have a weekly chapel.   Our educational approach is truly comprehensive, as we address the spiritual, academic, physical, and social needs of our students.  Our goal is to partner with families to meet their children’s educational needs at every stage of development.

A dedicated staff of 60+ adults serves our students.  Our parents are extremely involved in supporting the school.  Please join us for a tour of our facility and see first hand all that God is doing at Colonial Christian School in and through students, parents, and teachers!
