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.
