LARC ranch has a come a long way since its inception in 1959. They have a residential program as well as an adult center - which provides a variety of recreational activities for developmentally disabled adults. They also offer programs that prepare participants to enter the workforce.

LARC is dedicated to helping adults with special needs to thrive by providing a residential program that gives its residents a new sense of purpose and pride.

LARC Ranch was evacuated during the recent fires that affected Bouquet Canyon in Fall-2007. They lost their indoor swimming pool to the fire and have plans to build a new outdoor pool.

LARC is a non-profit organization and hold fundraisers during the year to help pay the bills.
