Mission Statement

The caring professionals at Monarch work diligently to provide a safe and nurturing, trauma-informed environment for each person. Staff provide individualized services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental illnesses as well as support and counseling for those with substance use challenges.


The Arc of Stanly County, Inc. was founded in 1958 by a small group of parents and other concerned individuals. At that time, little was known about the condition of intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) or its causes, and there were virtually no programs and activities in communities to assist in the development and care of children and adults with mental retardation and to help support families. In the early days the association worked to change the public’s perception of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to educate parents and others regarding the potential of people with I/DD. The Arc also worked to procure services for children and adults who were denied day care, preschool, education and vocational supports.

Today, we provide an array of services and supports across North Carolina for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance use disorders. Review our agency timeline to see our growth over the years.
