Image - The Arc of the United States

The Arc is the world’s largest community based organization of and for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It provides an array of services and support for families and individuals and includes over 140,000 members affiliated through more than 730 state and local chapters across the nation. The Arc is devoted to promoting and improving supports and services for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc’s vision is that every individual and family affected by intellectual disability in the United States has access to the information, advocacy, and skills they need to participate as active citizens of their democracy and active members of their community. They work to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the supports they need to live an ordinary, decent American life:

  • People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families are valued, respected and included in all communities.
  • People with intellectual and developmental disabilities direct their own lives. People choose their services and supports from many available sources.
  • People are empowered through nonprofit advocacy. State and federal governments administer programs and set budgets that meet everyone’s needs.
  • The Arc is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Mission Statement

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.
