Over 55 Years of Advocacy, Education, and Partnership for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Arc of Kentucky is the largest volunteer organization in the state. The Arc is a grassroots organization formed in 1955 by a small group of parents. (The national Arc was created in 1950.) The Arc is people – people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, neighbors and friends – advocating for fairness and equality. The Arc works to ensure a quality life for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We do this by focusing our efforts on P.E.O.P.L.E.!

P – protecting rights
E – encouraging inclusion
O – optimizing supports
P – promoting choice
L – lifting expectations
E – educating communities

The Arc is your platform and your voice working to provide the opportunities and supports for Kentuckians with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play in the community…as is their right.
