    Why should you sponsor?

    PARC’s Top Chefs is coming up quickly and we need your help! Our purpose at PARC is to provide opportunities to people with special needs and help them live life to the fullest. This amazing event highlights the Culinary Program, a unique program that trains and prepares adults with disabilities for jobs in St. Petersburg’s thriving hospitality industry.

    Through your support for this event, we hope to raise much-needed funds for PARC’s programs and services.  Proceeds will benefit the 800+ adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities that PARC is honored and privileged to serve each day.

    PARC , Inc.

    PARC is proud to provide over 40 services to over 800 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  By sharing our incredible stories, PARC strives to spread the vision, mission and values that have been instilled throughout PARC's history.  For 65 years, stories of success have played an intricate role in the growth of PARC, and we encourage everyone to carry on and share your own PARC story throughout the community.

    PARC helps children and adults focus on what they can do rather than what they are unable to do.  Children and their families receive early intervention services from an interdisciplinary team including teachers, social workers, nurses, behavior analysts, and therapists.  Services can be given on the PARC campus, at the child's home or in an environment chosen by the family.

    For adults, PARC embraces a "person centered" approach that allows staff to assist PARC participants in making their own choices.  PARC staff also work with individuals who are important in the participant's life, such as family members, guardians and friends.  Participants can actually design their life, choosing what they would like to do, where they would like to live and where they would like to work.

    These effective services help the children, youth and adults who receive PARC services and their families improve their quality of life in the simple everyday experiences that make up all our lives.

    PARC promotes a high level of support and services for each individual in over 40 programs.  Attention to each client's individual needs ensures they receive the highest quality care.  Our children and adults are valued and appreciated as unique individuals and it is their personal goals and desires that keep us focused on our mission.
