Celebrate

We believe in inclusion for people with disabilities in community life. The Arc fosters social connections and relationships throughout the year through parties, gatherings, and community events. Join us!

Educate

We work to inform and educate the community about DD issues. In 2020, we went virtual and hosted a number of free educational Zoom webinars, with plans for more.
