SpArc Philadelphia is a family. Families support one another - providing help wherever they can to make sure everyone stays happy, healthy, and included. How do we do that?
Check us out.

SpArc Philadelphia stands with the Black community in opposition to racial bias and inequity. Recent events have clearly illustrated the consistent systemic racism that plagues our country, and we recognize the years of pent-up frustration and anger. We call for an end to the violence caused by institutional racism. We call for an end to discrimination based on race, and we call for the creation of thoughtful and unifying policies that will end bias. As an organization dedicated to equity and access for all, SpArc Philadelphia and our family of organizations hope that the recent tragic events will serve as a catalyst for real change, justice, equality, inclusion, and dignity for every citizen of our country.

News & Notes

The Arc of Philadelphia and SpArc Services had a great semester hosting Nina and Tierney, students in the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program at Jefferson University. Nina and Tierney got involved with our organization through our HealthMeet program, an initiative of The Arc of Philadelphia that connects  with students in the health professions to teach them about inclusive medicine and working with people with disabilities.

We sat down with Tierney and Nina to hear more about what they learned during the semester and how they applied their occupational therapy curriculum to projects and activities designed for program participants.

Recently we had a Q&A with Mervin Giddins, Job Developer/ Job Coach. Get to know "Merv" by reading the full session.
