Review for The Arc of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA
My son, Gerry, was a client of the Arc from the time of his transition from High School until the day he passed away from a stroke three weeks before his 28th birthday. He loved the program, his job coaches and the independence the Arc afforded him. He had classes at City College which totally fit his interests and abilities. As a parent, I appreciated the safe environment and the growth Gerry achieved day by day and year by year. As a classroom aide in elementary grades in Special Education for twenty-six years, I was thrilled to see many of my former students achieve similar growth and happiness under the aegis of the Arc as adults.
