We Give Back to the Community

At Urban Crab Shack Parkville, we understand our community. In the past year or two, while everyone has navigated the pandemic, many people have come to realize the importance community has in everyday life. We at Urban Crab Shack always aim to aid our neighbors in any way we can.

The Arc of Baltimore is a charity that is near and dear to our hearts. The Arc supports people with developmental disabilities, to provide them with opportunities and relationships. Urban Crab holds fundraisers for The Arc and supports them in other ways as well.

The Arc has pivoted during the pandemic and is offering an amazing array of virtual day services and chat rooms. From nature and art classes to employment and computer skills, The Arc is an invaluable resource for citizens with developmental disabilities.

Some of the most socially and societally integrative aspects of The Arc are their workforce programs. There is a remarkable amount of quality future employees that are trained through The Arc. They help to assimilate people all over the business region with employment partners. The impressive list of partners includes some titans of industry. In this way, the community is directly affected in a positive manner. An increase in a productive workforce is always a boon locally in many, many ways.

The Arc of Baltimore

At The Arc of Baltimore, advocacy and public policy are centerpieces of their mission. They try to secure funding, they promote laws, and otherwise promote policy that will benefit the lives of people with developmental disabilities. Maximizing public benefits and education programs is another objective for The Arc.

The community living services include partnerships with clinicians, nurses, and coordinators. The Arc takes a holistic approach at caring for citizens with D/D, and wants to make sure they have proper housing, in addition to emotional and practical well-being.

One of the most modern and practically helpful segments of The Arc is the ”Assistive Technology Program”. This helps people with developmental disabilities to improve their lives through increased awareness, access, and support. This technology helps people with communication, computers, eating, environmental control, hearing, home safety, memory/cognition, phone, recreation, and vision.  It is an absolutely dynamic department within The Arc, where they are always trying to improve living conditions and the ease with which one can navigate the complexities of life.

Urban Crab Shack

Urban Crab Shack wants to support the goals of The Arc of Baltimore. It is very important to us, and we will try to promote their aims whenever we can. We would also like to provide resources and raise funds for the organization when we can. The Grand Opening in September is one example where spectacular prizes are offered to the community through a raffle, with proceeds benefitting The Arc.  Prizes include a flat screen television, four tablets, liquor goodie bags, gift cards, and more.

At our restaurant we not only support our community, but we hire a lot of our valued employees from our community. We also cherish the opinions of our neighbors, and if there is a charity or non-profit that is important to you, please speak to our managers about possible fundraising or support.

Don’t miss the chance to try the best crabs in town!
