Our annual Day of Caring is one great day of giving back!

Work hands-on to improve lives and create lasting, positive change in our community with United Way’s Nancy Jackson Memorial Day of Caring! This one-day volunteer endeavor has been an annual tradition of caring since 1994 and has grown to be the premiere volunteer effort in our community with the value of completed projects through the years surpassing the $2.5 million mark.

The volunteer projects include landscaping, painting, cleaning, maintenance, beautification, direct client interaction and scores of other critical tasks to benefit the local organizations making a difference in our community everyday.

Who we are

The Arc of Northeastern Pennsylvania is a grassroots organization formed in 1955 by a group of parents seeking public education for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since that time a growing number of parents, neighbors, and members of the business and professional communities have faced numerous challenges in advocating for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

What we do

The Arc is dedicated to securing for each individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to realize personal dreams through choice in how one lives, learns, works and enjoys life.

The Arc is further committed to reducing the incidence of intellectual and developmental disabilities through research, education and advocacy.

Therefore, The Arc will continue to be the leader in this field with the support of individuals, families, friends and community.
