The Arc of the South Shore, is a family oriented, community based agency in Weymouth MA. We have been providing services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and autism for more than sixty years. Our family supports division provides information and referral, a Saturday respite program for teens, family information forums, and social and recreational activities.
We are currently assessing the family support services needs of families in our community. Our goal is to expand our family supports department to address the needs of the growing community.

Henley Building Ribbon Cutting
On Monday, April 13, 2015, The Arc of the South Shore hosted family and friends, as well as 3 town officials from the Weymouth Planning and Community Development Department. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the recent renovations to the restrooms at The Arc of the South Shore’s Day Program space. With CDBG funding, The Arc of the South Shore was granted $112,000 to complete all of the renovations. The town has also funded a window replacement project in the past. The Arc of the South Shore is extremely grateful to the Mayor of Weymouth and the Planning and Development Department for their continued support.

On Friday morning, January 23, 2015, The Arc of the South Shore hosted the Southeastern MA Legislative Breakfast in partnership with GROW Associates, Inc., Friendship Home, Inc. and The Brockton Area Arc. The breakfast was held at Lombardo’s in Randolph.
With over 200 attendees, including more than 12 state legislatures, we had the opportunity to discuss FY16 priorities: keeping families together, promoting work and self sufficiency and Autism support and services. We had some wonderful speakers addressing the very important issues legislatures will be voting on. But, most importantly, we were enriched by listening to the self advocates and parents of the inidividuals we serve discuss just how vital these services are and the impact of these services in their day to day lives. A big thank you to all of our legislatures for taking the time to come out and participate in this very important event.
