Mission Statement

Description

The Arc of Fresno and Madera Counties offers individuals with an intellectual or developmental disability the opportunity to succeed in a supportive environment. The services available from The Arc offer clients the necessary training to acquire the skills needed to fully become an integral part of their community.

Founded in 1953 by a group of concerned parents wanting a fulfilling life for their children, The Arc began in a makeshift classroom at a local park facility. The Arc of Fresno and Madera Counties has grown from this small beginning to an organization that covers two counties of the Central Valley. The Arc serves over 650 individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities with a professional staff of 185 in eight program settings.
