Become A Part of Our Movement

Are people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families in your community underserved or dissatisfied with supports and services available? Feeling they don’t have a voice or aren’t included in decisions made about them?

Are you an established, nonprofit organization interested in connecting with a nationwide network?

Are you someone that has a vision of creating a supportive environment where people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities can enjoy fulfilling lives in their communities?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions but aren’t quite sure where to begin, The Arc is interested in your ideas and exploring the option of establishing a chapter of The Arc in your community.
