Meet the Arc of Adams County
  Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) directly affect one out of every ten families in America. It cuts across racial, ethnic, educational, social and economic lines.
  Parents of children with I/DD are often faced with the responsibility of providing lifelong planning and care for their loved one.  Such care can be draining both mentally and physically for the caregiver.
  The Arc of Adams County seeks to increase public awareness about I/DD and the needs as well as the wonderful potential of persons with I/DD.  It is our mission to help you find the services you need in order to be able to care for your loved one.  We can facilitate referral and lend support.

 A Leader in Disability Rights
  The Arc is the largest national community-based organization advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We encompass all ages and more than 100 different diagnoses including autism, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, and various other developmental disabilities.

Strong National Presence
  With nearly 700 state and local chapters nationwide, The Arc is on the front lines to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support and services they need to be fully engaged in their communities. The Arc works with its federation of state and local chapters to create an impressive network of human service agencies ensuring they have the strongest civil rights advocates promoting and protecting their needs at all levels.
  Our nationwide network of chapters provides a wide range of human services and other supports to people with I/DD and their family members, including individual and public policy advocacy and residential, educational, and vocational services that let people with I/DD participate and be included in their communities. In addition, many of our chapters provide person-centered and financial planning, recreational activities, and other supports that meet the unique needs of people with I/DD and their families
