Today, October 19, volunteers from the Arc of Erie will be at different Walmart locations taking donation for newspapers from 9:00 to Noon.

Thank you to everyone that came out and supported us at the Let It Roar poker Run. We would like to thank all of the volunteers for all of their hard work.

For those of you who may not have heard,  Karen Morahan did an interview with Sherri McBride on Happi 92.7 FM. Here is the link to the interview, just in case if you missed you

We are the largest national community-based organization advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.  We encompass all ages and all spectrums from autism, Down syndrome, Fragile X and various other developmental disabilities.

Strong National Presence

With more than 140,000 members and more than 700 state and local chapters nationwide, we are on the front lines to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support they need to be members of the community.

Deeply Rooted History

The Arc was born 60 years ago from a grassroots movement of families working vigilantly to create services for children and adults who were being denied day care, educational opportunities and work programs.

Founded in 1950, The Arc was comprised of a small group of concerned and passionate parents and community members who would be catalyst for changing the public perception of children with disabilities.  For the past 60 years, The Arc has continued to grow and evolve along with the changing needs and issues people with disabilities and their families face.

Governed by a volunteer board of directors and managed by key staff of The Arc, we work passionately to uphold our vision that every individual and family living with an intellectual or developmental disability in the United States has access to the information, advocacy and skills they need to participate as active citizens of our democracy and active members of their community.

Become a part of our mission and get involved today!
