Become part of our Team.  A large and active membership is critical to our success, in advocating, providing support to individuals and families, encouraging progressive legislation and developing and promoting effective programs and services.

The Arc Alliance is committed to making the public aware of the needs, rights and capabilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Individuals with developmental disabilities have far better schools, housing, and job opportunities today but much is needed to be done for their full integration into the community as equal participants.

Your support makes The Arc Alliance’s ability to address critical issues such as education, employment, housing and safety for the special needs community.  Help us make a difference today by joining the 1951 legacy of support.
