About The Arc Of Ohio


Who is the Arc of Ohio?

The Arc of Ohio is a statewide membership association made up of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, friends, interested citizens and professionals in the disability field. Together with our individual members and local chapters, we represent more than 330,000 Ohioans with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Ohio law recognizes The Arc of Ohio as the organization to represent families in Legislative decisions.



Mission Statement

The mission of The Arc of Ohio is to advocate for human rights, personal dignity and community participation of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, through legislative and social action, information and education, local chapter support and family involvement.


What does the Arc of Ohio believe in?

Our values are based on the concept that all people, regardless of ability, have the right to be productive, interdependent members of their respective communities and the society at large. We recognize the fundamental role of families in making choices and decisions for their minor children. We also hold that individuals, who are adults, have the right to make their own choices concerning where and with whom they will live, and how they will spend their time, regardless of ability.
