Arc of Greater New Orleans has been an integral part of the New Orleans area community since 1953, offering support and critical services to the area’s youngest residents and their families. We offer lifelong support to families in Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard Parishes. Arc’s Children’s Services include:

Family Services Coordination – Ages: birth to 3-years
Arc is there to not only help the child, but provide support to the family.

Respite Care – All Ages
It is widely recognized that families providing care to a person with a developmental disability are exposed to psychological and physical stresses which are unique, demanding and unrelenting. Family members need time away, to take care of personal needs or simply to renew themselves. At other times, emergency events may demand the time and attention of a caregiver. In either case, Respite Services can be an invaluable resource and is offered through Project H.E.L.P.
