Welcome to the Arc of Adams County!
We are people united by a common determination -- To give everyone the opportunity to live, learn, work and play in their own community. The Arc of Adams County has been around since 1957. We offer advocacy services, public education awareness, trainings, and more. We are part of a nationwide voluntary organization whose members are devoted to improving the lives of persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) without regard to race, creed, geographical location or degree of disability. We are united to assure that every person has a chance to develop to their fullest potential and to enjoy the full range of human and civil rights. The Arc of Adams County is a local chapter unit of The Arc of Colorado and The Arc of the United States. Arcs were first organized in 1950 by friends and parents of persons with I/DD to help develop services and supports for people. Today there are over 245,000 members affiliated with 1500 state and local member units in all 50 states. The Arc of Colorado provides advocacy in areas of the state that do not have a local unit, provides information and referral and addresses system change issues in Colorado. The state and local units are affiliated with The Arc of the United States which provides access to information and experts on public policy, encourages research and provides continual updates with respect to national issues.
