The Arc Alliance, founded December 14, 1951, by eight concerned parents, is a leading proponent of the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. In the early years the agency was known as The Arc of Montgomery County. Since then, The Arc Alliance experienced continued growth and now covers Montgomery, Berks & Bucks Counties as well as parts of other surrounding counties. For over 60 years The Arc Alliance has been and continues to be one of the largest proponents of the rights of people with Intellectual and Developmental Delays and Disabilities in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
