Supported Employment

Northeast Arc’s mission — through Breaking Grounds Café and other initiatives — is to equip people with disabilities with the skills needed to excel in the customer or food service industry. For more than sixty years, Northeast Arc has been helping people with disabilities realize their employment goals.


Northeast Arc

Northeast Arc changes lives for people with disabilities — and children at risk of developing them — and their families. Each year, more than 10,000 people are helped as a result of the agency’s work and the generous support of our staff, Board and donors in the community.



Breaking Grounds offers a variety of fresh sandwiches and snacks, and exceptional coffee.
