Parents Learning Together helps parents with developmental disabilities learn the skills they need to raise their children in a safe, developmentally appropriate environment.
“We are fortunate to have such a strong community partner and supporter in the Daughters of Charity Foundation. With their help, we are moving forward with our commitment to children and families who, without intervention, might otherwise be considered at-risk,” said Kathy Meath, President and CEO of the St. Louis Arc.
The St. Louis Arc has offered the Parents Learning Together program since 1988. It offers group meetings and individualized, in-home attention so parents can learn the best and most effective ways to parent their children and manage their households.
The St. Louis Arc is a non-profit United Way agency that provides support and services to more than 3,000 adults and children with developmental disabilities, and their families, throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area. It is an affiliated chapter of The Arc of the United States.
