Membership in the United Arc
The United Arc is part of the largest national community-based organization in the country supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Your support makes The United Arc’s powerful voice even stronger as we address issues such as education, employment, housing, and safety that are critical to the disability community.
By becoming a member of The United Arc you become part of our shared network of more than 140,000 members and close to 700 affiliated chapters nationwide. You can be a part of the largest grassroots movement to protect the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
As part of this shared network, you’ll be connected to others with and without disabilities who share your beliefs and your challenges. Self-advocates (an individual with I/DD), their family members, experts and professionals in the field and advocates and activists work together through The United Arc to ensure that people with I/DD have the resources to meet their needs and live self-determined lives.
