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.


Improving these homes fosters community acceptance and inclusion for those served by The Arc.”
