The Arc of the Capital Area (ACA) provides support and information for families of children with disabilities, chronic illnesses, or other special needs. There are no fees for services and the only eligibility requirement is that families want to participate. The program distributes resource information about funding sources, childcare and respite, local support groups, community services, local conferences, and specific disabilities and syndromes. A special program called Kristen's Fund was established as a limited source of funding to assist parents of children with special needs who find themselves unable to pay for essential resources. The Program also operates a parent-matching program for those with children who have similar special needs. Other services include weekly educational and support groups, used equipment exchange, and a lending resource library. The Arc of the Capital Area is the parent group of the Pilot Parent Program.
