The Arc of Northeastern Pennsylvania

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.
