The Arc of the New River Valley

“We envision people with disabilities leading full, rich lives as active, contributing members of their communities.”


Spring is the time we come together for the Annual Dinner and Dance. Fall is a time to celebrate with a pot luck and dancing. We always have our holiday Cookie Party after our December Board meeting. We hope you can join us for these and other events.

We have lots of fun at our community celebrations!

An Annual Tradition

Each December we put the Christmas Cookie Party on our calendar. The Arc of the New River Valley Board members, community members and friends get together to enjoy a tempting array of homemade cookies and other kinds of sweet treats as we sing along to holiday songs.
