For almost 60 years, our chapter of The Arc has been working to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. Whether it's advocating for an individual or family, behind-the-scenes work to shape policy, or educating others, all of our programming aims to remove barriers and create better/more opportunities for people with disabilities.
Our programs at glance:
Individual Advocacy: Helping individuals and families find information and resources, navigate complex systems, solve problems, and overcome obstacles.
Classes and Training: Training individuals and families on advocacy-related topics, techniques, and skills.
Legislative and Systemic Advocacy: Shaping the laws, policies, and rules that affect the lives and opportunities of people with I/DD.
