WHO WE ARE
The Arc is the nation’s leading advocacy and service organization for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Arc of the New River Valley is a local chapter of The Arc of Virginia and The Arc of the United States. The Arc of the New River Valley serves the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski and the City of Radford, Virginia. Read our 2020 Legislative Agenda.
We advocate for the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, inform and educate the community about issues affecting people with disabilities and their families, advocate for full participation in community life, and facilitate opportunities for social connections and relationships.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– MAHATMA GANDHI
