Parent Meetings At The Arc

We would like to thank all of our families who came out and joined us for our family meetings here at The Arc. It was awesome to see so many people turn out.

You all brought us some great ideas! We love the idea of “bring your parent to work day.” We also heard some great ideas for informational sessions. We are working on getting some speakers lined up who can address some of your concerns about waivers, wills, estates and trusts and health concerns for people with special needs.

Please keep sending us your ideas. We want our families to be involved. The Arc is here because of our families and you are the key to our success.

We are holding another parent meeting at noon on Thursday, October 16th, here at The Arc Carroll County. If you missed the first two meetings, please join us for information on changes at The Arc and also a conversation on how we can meet your family’s needs.

Please RSVP to Sharon Smith at, or Kim Booe at Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions. Sharon can be reached at 410-848-4124 ext. 146.

Have a good laugh, see a great show, support The Arc!

The Arc Carroll County will host an evening with The Capitol Steps on Saturday, October 11th, at Winters Mill High School in Westminster, MD.

The Capitol Steps show has become an Arc Carroll County tradition. We have been hosting the event for more than a decade and it is The Arc’s signature fundraising event.

If you have never seen The Capitol Steps before, come check them out. The Steps are a Washington D.C.-based comedy group made up of former Capitol Hill staffers. If you like Stephen Colbert, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart or Saturday Night Live, you will like The Capitol Steps. They make light of our politics through song and skits. What better way to get ready for the upcoming general election, then to come out and laugh with us on Oct. 11th?

Tickets are $25 and are on sale now at, or by calling 410-848-4124 ext. 146. You can also visit The Carroll Arts Center at 91 S. Main Street in Westminster or any branch of The Carroll County library system.
