About Us & Our Mission

About The Arc of the Bay / St. Andrew Bay Center

Since 1957, The Arc of the Bay / St. Andrew Bay Center, a non-profit agency in Lynn Haven, Florida has provided support and opportunities for adults with disabilities. Designed around individual needs, all of our services assist individuals to become as self-sufficient and independent as possible.

Personal quality of life flourishes for most citizens in our community, however, for individuals with disabilities these opportunities do not often occur by themselves. St. Andrew Bay Center facilitates those opportunities for individuals with disabilities in Bay County. We offer a unique blend of training and services for 300+ individuals with disabilities in our community.
