Thank You Partners

We are so grateful for the support of our corporate partners, who are committed to strengthening individuals and families and building a stronger Arc community. Together, we are helping to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Thanks to the help of our sponsors, individuals with I/DD have access to the information, advocacy, and skills they need to support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes, Thank you to the following 2021 partners: Little America Hotel & Resort-Cheyenne, The Moose Lodge-Chapter 257, Capitol Roofing and the Terry Bison Ranch.
We would also like to personally thank each of our members for being a part of The Arc. We are grateful that you continue to continue your membership with us and are active participants in our programming. Please join us as we work together to make 2022 the best year yet.

Building Community for All

For over 70 years, The Arc has been fighting for people with disabilities to live independently with the right supports and lead the same kind of life as everyone else. People with disabilities and their families want access to a life in the community, no matter the level of supports necessary to make that happen. But when they try to find what they need, too often the system fails them.

 

 
 
 
Everyone benefits when people with disabilities are a part of the fabric of our communities, not locked away in the archaic institutions that still exist in 36 states. Institutions are large, often crowded places that limit people and their choices and force them to live segregated lives away from their family and friends without access to the supports needed to live in their own homes and communities. Yet this country has treated access to the services that help people with disabilities gain independence as an option, not a right. This is even more urgent during the pandemic, as crowded institutions and nursing homes have put people at much greater risk of contracting COVID-19.
