Join the Board

of The Arc of Iowa

Do you like helping other families, sharing ideas and seeking solutions?

Then you would be a great fit as a member of The Arc of Iowa Board!   We are seeking families across Iowa with children of any age with a chronic health condition, disability, or behavioral health issue.   The Board meets every other month and meetings are both virtual and in-person so you can make it work for you and your family.   There are opportunities to engage more frequently in advocacy work by joining one of the Arc sub-committees.   If another family has helped you by sharing a helpful resource, or if you, like the idea of “paying it forward” we urge you to give us a call to chat about the work our members are doing.   Arc is making a difference family by family.   We need your gifts and talents!   Leave a message for Nancy at 847-894-9713 .

Nancy Baker-Curtis,  Board President
