For people with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Our Programs

The Arc of Indiana was established in 1956 by parents of children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who joined together to build a better and more accepting world for their children.

From its humble beginnings, The Arc is now recognized as the State’s most well-respected and leading advocacy association for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families. Today, the work of The Arc continues to:

  • Empower families with information and resources to assist them in their journey of raising a child with a disability to lead a full and meaningful life.
  • Empower people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to be self sufficient and independent to the greatest extent possible.
  • Inspire positive change in public policy and public attitudes.
  • Reduce the incidence of disabilities.
  • Serve as a spokesperson and advocate for families and their loved ones.

Whether you are a family member, a person with a disability, or a professional connected to the world of disabilities – we’re here to help through our programs and services.
