Why Give to The Arc of Virginia?

Picture3Sixty years ago, families came together to form The Arc of Virginia so that they and their loved ones had a voice in Virginia’s capitol. They sparked a movement that led to community integration for people with I/DD in Virginia’s schools, neighborhoods and communities. Their actions helped pave the way for the services and supports that exist today. While much has been accomplished, the work is not yet done.

It is our turn to continue the work of the heroes who came before us. The Arc of Virginia needs your help to carry on our important legacy of advocating for the rights and full inclusion of children and adults with developmental disabilities. We hope you will join us in advocating for A Life Like Yours for Virginians with developmental disabilities as we work to strengthen and sustain this all too important civil rights movement.
