For almost 60 years, EMARC’s mission is to support, serve, and advocate for people with developmental disabilities and their families to ensure they are valued, respected and have the opportunity to fully participate in their communities. In 1954, a group of concerned parents and relatives of individuals with developmental disabilities began seeking solutions to the lack of services for their children. In October 1957, the group was incorporated as the East Middlesex Association for Children. In 1974 it began reflecting the Agency’s provision of services to all age groups and a new focus on adult services. Soon after, EMARC began to focus its attention on the over 22 population which, to this day, are not entitled to guaranteed services.

Today, EMARC annually serves over 1,000 families from Everett, Lynn, Lynnfield, Malden, Medford, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Saugus, Stoneham, Wakefield and surrounding communities.
