The Arc offers family advocacy services, including but not limited to: referral services, support groups, and advocacy for educational, physical health, and emotional needs for families of, and individuals with, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Our support groups are for family members/caregivers of children with developmental/intellectual disabilities and we meet once a week in each of our service counties.

Our family advocate assists individuals with I/DD in making life choices for school, work and every-day living, and helps them to coordinate medical and social services with other providers of their needs.
