A note from Anne

Anne Couldridge

The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC) empowers people to live, work and play in their own community.

It all began when a small group of parents championed community-based services for their children – rather than send them to state institutions.

Today, CPARC provides support and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We help 1,700 people and employ more than 300 staff. Isn’t this an amazing example of what a group of like-minded individuals can accomplish?

As CPARC celebrates its past, we must also look the future. The Board of Directors, staff, and programs are motivated by our mission to empower, inspire & educate.

Now the community is more diverse than ever. We must build a more inclusive community. When ability is focused on rather than disability, we are inspired to create innovative ways to help people achieve their highest level of independence.

What inspires you? How might you use your time, talents, and passion to help someone with a disability?

I encourage you to reach out to us when you are ready to empower, inspire & educate people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families​.

Kind regards,

Anne M. Couldridge

Executive Director
