The Arc New York

The Arc New York's mission is to advocate for people with developmental and other disabilities in every manner possible. We are committed to a full quality of life for every person.

The Arc New York, formerly known as NYSARC, was founded in 1949 to serve a critical mission – to improve the quality of life for people with developmental and other disabilities. What started as a support group and day nursery for families coping with these disabilities has grown to become the largest nonprofit in New York State serving those with developmental and other disabilities.
