Testimonials and Success Stories
I joined ARC because I knew that helping people as a job, rather than just during my spare time, would an efficient way to pursue this passion. I stay because assisting people to learn skills, develop community connections, and become more independent enables them to improve their own lives in the long term. The fact that we are helping an underserved population completes the trifecta: Great good is done, for those with great need, while making the most of the limited time and energy that life affords us.

Community and Inclusion Project
The mission of The Arc of Rensselaer County is to advocate for the rights and safety of individuals of all ages who have an intellectual disability and/or a developmental disability or delay.
The Arc is a source of support, specialized knowledge, and available resources in assisting individuals and their families to meet their needs and goals.
The Arc works to influence societal attitudes and governmental policy so that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will have access to the services, assistance, and opportunities they need for personal growth and development, and participation in the community.
