The Arc carries out its mission of protecting and promoting the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families through innovative programs. Our initiatives touch almost every aspect of life in the community. By sharing our knowledge and conducting trainings and events, our programs help connect communities and inform efforts to broaden inclusion across the country.

For the second year, The Arc is pleased to receive an award from Verizon to further implement the Building Community Resilience Through Inclusive Disaster Preparedness program. Activities will center on the perspectives and needs of people with disabilities during a disaster.
The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
