A family-based organization for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities


For 75 years, The Arc New York has been a leader in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Formed in 1949 by parents who wanted a better life for their children, The Arc New York has helped to create opportunities for people with IDD to live inclusive and meaningful lives through quality supports and services.  

“The Legacy Project: Stories of Love, Determination & Reflection” captures, through video storytelling and written words, who we are as an organization and the struggles and triumphs we have witnessed throughout our history.
