The Arc believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have strengths, abilities and inherent value, are equal before the law, and must be treated with dignity and respect. Since 1953, we have been providing advocacy and support services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Arc was founded by people just like you – caregivers, guardians, protectors, advocates, but most of all loving parents. Frustrated by the lack of services and supports for their children, these parents founded this resource for families living with disabilities.
The Arc strengthens people with disabilities, their parents, family members, and dedicated professionals by connecting them across our national network of community based chapters. We are the nation’s leading advocate for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families and the premier provider of the supports and services you want and need.
The Arc of North Carolina is committed to securing for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to choose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work and play.
