Detailed Strategic Plan

"Rally for Inclusion"
We are ALL meant to SHINE!

Please, use our convenient DONATE button found at the top of every page.

Join us for another fabulous day on
Boston Common for the
2015 "All Aboard The Arc!" rally.

The “All Aboard The Arc!” central event will take place on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at the Boston Common near the Brewer Fountain in the proximity of the Park Street MBTA station and the State House.  We hope to be able to draw the attention of the public at this outdoor setting as the gathering will feature a rally for inclusion from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.  Our theme again this year is:  “We are ALL meant to shine.”  Susan Tran from Channel 7 WHDH will be the master of ceremonies.  Musical entertainment is planned along with special guest, Lauren Potter from Glee.

The Brockton Area Arc will use its location at 1250 West Chestnut Street as the gathering point the morning of May 16th, starting at 10:00 a.m., for our “All Aboard The Arc!” participants.  A continental breakfast will be available prior to our 11:30 a.m. departure.  Buses will be available to take us to the central event on the Boston Common.  On board our buses will be advocates who support our fundraiser and "rally for inclusion".  This event is inclusive, as anyone and everyone, has the ability to get on board!

The Brockton Area Arc's goal is to raise
$72,000.00+ in 2015.

To "get on board" to raise funds or ride with us, contact Gail Delgado at 508-583-8030 x216 or email her at

Each year the Brockton Area Arc has only two major fundraisers: "All Aboard The Arc!" and our famous and fabulous golf tournament.  The revenue earned during these events is vital to the continued success of our programs.

Employment Services

BAArc operates an Employment Services Program, offering both placement assistance in local businesses and job opportunities at our own Shoe City Contract Company.

Community Based Day Supports

A program of supports designed to enable an individual to enrich his or her life and enjoy a full range of community activities by providing opportunities for developing, enhancing, and maintaining competency in personal, social, and community activities.

Day Habilitation Services:
