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.

What We Do


Advocate

We work with local and state legislators to support the Arc of Virginia’s agendas. We keep our members and friends informed about disability issues before the Virginia General Assembly.

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.

Our Mission


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.
