The Arc is like many other organizations that rely on the community to support its mission. Without your help The Arc cannot advocate for individuals who have a difficult time representing themselves. The Arc will not be able to work closely with legislators ensuring that laws are being followed that allow individuals with disabilities choices in leading a full life. The Arc cannot offer educational workshops and trainings to individuals and families to guide them in making the best choices for their lives. Social gatherings that forge friendship and build self-esteem would be limited without funds to supplement the activities.
