Welcome to SPARC - Where we celebrate the triumph of the human spirit!
Sparc enriches the lives of individuals with intellectual and development disabilities by enabling them to successfully live, learn, work and socialize in the community.
Founded in 1951, Sparc is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Springfield area. For over 60 years, we’ve been dedicated to helping individuals find work and outlets to build self-confidence and independence, and live up to their potential.
Our work center provides training opportunities to help both individuals and local businesses. Our programs provide work to improve ability to engage in productive work activities through a focus on cooperation, attendance, productive capacity, and task completion. Individuals also receive assistance and training in physical fitness, computer skills, work-place relationships, volunteerism, self-advocacy, personal care and other hobbies. Building these skills allows individuals to find and maintain a place in a work atmosphere, and provides assistance to local businesses looking for help.
