More Than Fifty Years of Advocacy and Service:
The organization can trace its roots back to the 1950’s when it began as a group of dedicated parents of children with physical and developmental challenges. They believed their sons and daughters should not be alienated, but rather, needed to be a part of their community. These parents are the foundation of the creation of our program! Formerly known as ARC Industries, it was established as a non-profit corporation in 1989. In 1993, this Belleville based organization gained charitable status within Ontario and changed its name to the present Quinte Vitality and Social Support. Check out Admissions on our webpage to see the services we offer for the Belleville, Trenton, Stilring, Quinte Area, or any other part of Ontario.
