The Arc carries out its mission of protecting and promoting the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families through innovative programs. Our initiatives touch almost every aspect of life in the community. By sharing our knowledge and conducting trainings and events, our programs help connect communities and inform efforts to broaden inclusion across the country.

Making a Difference Through Digital Skills Training
For people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, digital access and skills are a critical component of gaining independence. In 2022, The Arc and Comcast NBCUniversal once again teamed up to open digital doors.
The Arc Continues To Build Its National Inclusive Volunteering Programs
The Arc is thrilled to announce it has once again received funding from AmeriCorps. With this grant, The Arc will continue to build both of its inclusive volunteering national initiatives: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service and September 11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
