Our Mission

The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetime.

Membership Matters

​The Arc was instrumental in the establishment of North Dakota's current system of residential serves and supports for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

Today, people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities have choices in how they live, learn, work and play.

We have come a long way, but all that we have accomplished could go away if we are not diligent.

Community
