Parent Mentor Program


Have you ever wanted to give back to the developmental disability community, but didn’t know how, or where to start? 

The Arc of Ohio is excited to announce a new opportunity! We are partnering with Stark DD to start a Parent Mentoring Program. We are looking for parents, guardians, and caregivers of every age group and stage of life, to share their resources, knowledge, and experiences with those families struggling to find services for their loved ones.

We recognize the extreme value of the knowledge and experience our families have to offer and want to expand on that potential. If you are interested in becoming a Parent Mentor, see the attached application. Training will be provided.


Please send any applications to or mail them to:
The Arc of Ohio
6900 Market Ave N
Canton, OH 44721
Thank you and we look forward to being able to work together to better the lives of our loved ones!
