Arc Midstate

Who We Are

Arc Midstate provides supports and advocates to secure and enhance opportunities for people with developmental disabilities such as Autism, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and more and their families to choose how they live, learn, work, play in their communities. Arc Midstate has roots in our community since 1956 when parents and others with concerns for the well being and rights of people with developmental disabilities began to informally meet. The Arc Midstate Chapter was officially established in 1969. As a result of the continous efforts of Arc, services have improved dramatically; however there is an ongoing need to continue efforts to maintain services and move forward for continued improvement and access to services.
