The Arc Is On The Move!

eva movingThe Arc of Massachusetts is getting ready to move to temporary quarters so construction on the new building can begin this spring. Our current location at 217 South Street, Waltham has been home for The Arc for more than twenty years. Our new building will be located at the same address once our existing building has been demolished. A temporary, nearby location will allow us to continue our same services during the construction phase. We’ve already started the long process of packing and sorting which will take the next few weeks to complete. Any mail should be sent to P.O. Box 541603, Waltham, MA 02454
