The Arc of Virginia promotes “A Life Like Yours,” by joining together people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, family members, and concerned citizens who possess the vision for a community that includes ALL of its citizens. Advocacy is a key component of our identity as The Arc of Virginia. We speak out on issues that affect people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in order to protect their rights, ensure full inclusion, and foster participation for self-determination. We also serve as an information and referral source and help those we serve to navigate a complex system for receiving services.
