Mission Statement

The Arc Arapahoe & Douglas Counties uses advocacy and education to include all children and adults with disabilities in their communities.

Description

The Arc Arapahoe & Douglas Counties is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing advocacy, information and support to people with developmental disabilities and their families. The Arc of Arapahoe & Douglas opened it's doors in 1955, and over the years, the organization has continually provided services that promote the general welfare of people with developmental disabilities including: advocacy, public awareness, training, community organizing, educating legislators and referral to resources.

We believe in what Congress stated in the Reauthorization of the Rehabilitation Act: ..."disability is a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes the rights of individuals to live independently, enjoy self-determination, make choices, contribute to society, pursue meaningful careers, and enjoy full inclusion and integration in the economic, political social, cultural and educational mainstream of American society".

As a local chapter of The Arc of the United States , a nationwide organization of 140,000 parents, consumers and professionals in the field, we are active in pursuing services and supports that promote the rights and welfare of people with disabilities.
