Arc of the Emerald Coast

 Impact 100 Aquatic Center & Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation Education Center

On May 23rd, 2017, The Arc of the Emerald Coast proudly opened their Impact 100 Aquatic and Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation Education Center, named after the entities that provided the funding.

The Aquatic and Education Center was born out of a philosophy that those with disabilities have as much potential and capabilities as anyone else and should have access to them.  The Aquatic & Education Center was a vision that came from a demand; for those who have disabilities to have access to an aquatic and education center focused on their needs and inclusive with our community.  In the works since 2014, the Aquatic & Education Center is home to the ONLY fully handicapped accessible swimming pool for people with disabilities in the region. Additionally, the Aquatic & Education Center is home to our Early Intervention offices, serving children 0-3, and the Cox Communications Dietary Center, providing courses in nutrition to families and caregivers of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 The Aquatic & Education Center is open by appointment to organizations seeking its use.

To find out more information, please call the Aquatic Center at 850-301-0635 or email our center manager at mdane@horizonsfwb.com.
