THE ARC STATE CHAPTER
Most states have a state chapter and the core of state chapters is Public Policy. State chapters vary in size and the scope of work varies from state to state. We are one of the largest state chapters in terms of staff and budget offering a variety of services and programs to individuals and family members.
We offer a variety of opportunities to attend and obtain information about workshops designed for families, self-advocates educators and community members on topics of importance to individuals dealing with intellectual disabilities.
A memorial gift is a beautiful and lasting tribute for a loved one or to a family as an expression of sympathy. Family and friends can be recognized with a gift in their honor. This might be for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, holiday, wedding, retirement, etc.
