The Arc United is committed to securing opportunities for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We  create programs and opportunities for all to learn, live, work, play and plan their future while realizing their goals.

Every individual and family served has access to program information, advocacy and skill building opportunities.  

The Arc United helps to create active citizens of our democracy and active members of their community.
