Volunteer Opportunities

Some of the creative ways volunteers have made a difference at The Arc:

  • Teaching arts and crafts to individuals in our Day Program.
  • Hosting a book club for our young women, which meets monthly at the East Columbia Branch Library.
  • Painting, landscaping and performing renovations at Arc homes and our headquarters.
  • Teaching Arc women about healthy relationships in a six-week ¬†Women’s Relationship Group each spring.

Please click on the “Volunteer Opportunities” link above to see how you ¬†can participate in The Arc of Howard County’s vibrant community of volunteers.

Do you have a special talent or hobby? Please contact Lisa Kawata.


What The Arc has accomplished is fabulous. Howard County is very lucky to have such a vibrant program.
