Become A Member

BARC membership enhances a work in progress that began in 1949 and has given vital services to persons with developmental disabilities, their families and our community.

With the vision of yesterday and today, BARC has led positive changes that have increased quality of life for those we serve by helping individuals make the most of their lives.  A majority of our clients are achieving self-reliance, are employed, becoming independent and participate fully in the community.

Without BARC, where would they be?

Approximately 15% of those enrolled would be homeless without BARC. Similarly, it is estimated that less than 1% would find regular employment if BARC were not available to provide training and support services.

Act now…your membership means so much. See the benefit to you and our community.
