About The Arc
The Arc was established in 1950 from a grassroots movement of families working to create services for their children and adults with an intellectual disability. The Arc is the oldest and largest advocacy organization that promotes the human rights of people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) and supports their full inclusion in the community. The Arc has a large network. Our chapters serves more than 1.4 million individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. We have over 660 chapters in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
