Help us keep The Arc’s mission in motion: enabling people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to live the lives they choose as valued, contributing, and equal members of their community.

Over 75% of people served by The Arc do not have family support in their lives. As such, The Arc has become their family and sole source of community, with Direct Support Professionals at the frontline of their care and wellbeing now and every day.

The people we serve and the disability community at large relies on the programs of The Arc to continue to thrive. Many receive vital medications, treatments, and services that we offer, while others depend on the distribution of food from our United Way Food Bank and medications from local pharmacies to maintain their health and well-being. Their livelihoods are intricately tied to the in-person support of their DSPs (direct support professionals), the routine schedules of house managers, and the access to and efficacy of our team.

Now is the time to join The Arc and commit to walk alongside us and our mission, by helping provide the necessary tools to enable our DSPs to continue their work and in turn, enhance the livelihood of the people we serve. Your gift is the best assurance that we can do this.

Making your donation recurring ensures that The Arc’s budget is a strong and steady income source to continue providing meaningful support and services to those we care for the most deeply.

Thank you — we could not fight this fight without you!
