Allegany Arc (The Arc) promotes understanding of the abilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Awareness, education and treatment are the core of what we do.
The Arc advocates for the rights of all people with disabilities. Through our network of members and affiliated chapters, we support and empower individuals and families, influence public policy, increase public awareness, and inspire inclusive communities. Values such as inclusion, exercise of rights, self-determination and values-based treatment are at the core of our mission - providing the highest quality opportunities for people with special needs and their families.
