Background Statement

The Arc Arapahoe, Douglas & Elbert Counties has been providing advocacy and support to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families since 1955. This organization originated when parents who had sons and daughters with developmental disabilities developed and submitted Articles of Incorporation to the State of Colorado. We are affiliated with The Arc of Colorado and The Arc United States. We continue to work in our community to enhance the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities and their families. Our core values are People First, Democracy, Visionary, Leadership, Community Participation, Diversity and Integrity and Excellence.
