The Advocacy and Resource Center (Clinton County Chapter, NYSARC, Inc.)

The Advocacy and Resource Center is a private non profit human service agency which has provided services to the developmentally disabled citizens of Clinton County since 1954. The Agency was founded by several determined parents who came together with their handicapped sons and daughters looking for an alternative to life in an "institution". These parents began with a small educational program at the Lakeside School - a school which they built in 1954 with volunteer labor, donated materials and lots of love.
