Get Started With ARCH!

Serving the Valley's Special Needs Community


ARCH is a 5-acre recreation center in the heart of Phoenix, offering a full range of skills-based programs and activities, enabling adults and children with developmental disabilities to obtain higher levels of physical well-being, pride, independence, and self-esteem.

Our History

We opened our doors on September 23rd 1975 to 25 teens and adults in an old cafetorium at the abandoned Alhambra Elementary School on Grand Avenue.

A founding premise of ARCH was that individuals with disabilities should be given every opportunity to develop, both physically and mentally, to the full extent of his or her potential.

We could not have done it without all of you and the employees that were here. ...
