The Arc of Blair County

The Arc of Blair County believes that persons with developmental disabilities are valuable members of society and have the same rights as all citizens. They have the right to a free and appropriate education in an integrated setting, the right to live in a comfortable residence in their own local community, the right to protection from health and safety hazards in their environment, the right to work at a meaningful wage in a vocation appropriate to their talents, the right to social and personal relationships and the right to participate in the recreational and cultural activities of their community. It is the vision of Arc of Blair County to foster, protect and nurture these rights.

The Arc of Blair County serves as an important voice for persons with disabilities and their families.

The Arc is beginning a new program in conjunction with Penn State Altoona. We are starting a one-to-one friend activity where Penn State students match with an Arc member and do different things together - shopping, movies, bowling, etc. The 'friends' decide what they want to do and when. This is open to people over the age of 18. If interested, please contact The Arc of Blair County at 946-1011.

Concerned About Issues? Are you worried about the lack of funding for people with disabilities in the state budget? Do you have concerns about competitive employment because of a disability? Are you worried about services following high school? Contact The Arc of Blair County to discuss your individual situation. We have over 60 years of advocacy experience. Resources on a variety of topics are available.
