Information and Referral (I+R)
The Arc provides families and others who contact us with direct information about disability related issues and community resources. The Arc is also a resource for professionals in the disability field. We have extensive files of information and will provide printed material on request.
With education and awareness comes understanding and acceptance. The Arc Advocacy & Resource Center views increased public awareness as one of the major components to greater understanding and community acceptance of persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. To this end, The Arc provides members, families, professionals, organizations, and the community-at-large with direct and indirect information about Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
