The Arc of DC is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) membership organization serving persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in the District of Columbia. The Arc of DC provides support services to more than 300 persons annually. The Arc of DC has been in the forefront of advocacy and service delivery in Washington, DC since its founding in 1950. The Arc of DC is a state chapter of The Arc of the United States.
We envision a society in which individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities exercise their rights and are afforded a full set of opportunities and choices that enable them to contribute and have impact in the community.
