Individual members are the strength of The Arc's nationwide movement! Individuals working together as members provided the foundation for The Arc and the many programs now available for children and adults with mental retardation and developmental disabilities. The Arc continues to be the driving force for improving the quality of life, working on behalf of the 7.2 million people in the U.S. with developmental disabilities, and their families.
A chapter's membership contributes to a strong and effective nationwide presence. Here are five important reasons why you should consider membership in The Arc:
Interested in sharing your hobbies or interests with a person with disabilities? Swimmers, gardeners, musicians, bird watchers, woods walkers, bingo players, avid readers, people interested in community activities. We encourage community inclusion on a one-on-one basis.
