The Arc of Allegan County advocates for the rights and full participation of all children and adults with intellectual and other related developmental disabilities. Our mission is "to advocate for persons with developmental disabilities so they may live, learn, work, and play with dignity, respect, and meaningful involvement in their communities."
We strive to improve systems of supports and services; connect families; inspire our community and influence public policy. We are a non-profit, charitable organization funded in part by the Allegan County United Way, and through the kindness of our most generous individual donors.
The Arc of Allegan County works through education, research, and advocacy to improve the quality of life for children and adults with cognitive, intellectual, and developmental disabilities in every community; and, works to prevent both the causes and effects of intellectual and other related developmental disabilities. All of our services are free.
We proudly serve individuals and families throughout Allegan County as a local affiliated chapter of The Arc Michigan and The Arc of the United States.
