Achieve With Us

It all began with a search for opportunity … for hope… for our children, for our families, for our community. Sixty years later we are now more than 700 chapters strong.

As we grow, opportunity must come to mean even more…  understanding… inclusion …independence… respect.  It means creating opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, protecting human rights for your children, for young adults, for young families and for older families.

The Arc leads the way. The Arc creates a path; it provides support, hope, representation and information.  We have a strong voice. Together we make a difference. Together we have the power to achieve.
