The Arc at Market Street

The Enviable Lives Campaign: Investing Towards the Future

The Arc of Frederick County is looking forward to parterning with you on our new endeavor.  We expanded our services to 555 South Market Street in Frederick in 2015.

The Arc of Frederick County renovated the space to creatively serve more people with developmental disabilities in our community.

Our Building Includes:

  • Program area for people with significant disabilities
  • Gluten-Free Bakery
  • Commercial Kitchen
  • Shops and Micro Businesses operated either by people with disabilities or hiring people we serve
  • Training and social areas for people we serve


Why The Building is Needed

The Arc supports people with significant disabilities by offering services during the day. This program offers an engaging and active environment where people can work on learning skills and maintaining their health in addition to participating in activities in our community.

The Arc at Market Street has a large gathering area to bring in the community. There are numerous activities that people we support want to learn about or participate in, but they often have trouble finding places that will accommodate their needs. With this space, there will be opportunities for performers, artists, and others to come and share with people we serve and the broader community. In addition, The Arc will have social events for people we support. Our hope is that this will help people with disabilities become more connected to the broader Frederick community.
