Thank you early childhood partnership of adams county (ecpac) for helping our families and making our community stronger!

what we do

The Arc of Adams County works to ensure that people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) have the services and supports they need to become valued, contributing members of their communities and achieve their dreams.

who we serve

Individuals with an Intellectual/Developmental Disability (I/DD) which is characterized by significant limitations in cognitive functioning and/or adaptive behavior (daily living skills). This is measured by an IQ and/or adaptive skills of 70 or below prior to the age of 22.


The Arc in Adams County as well as all Arc Chapters in Colorado have always been and will continue to be civil and human rights organizations. We are pained and heartbroken by the acts of violence and racial injustice impacting our black and brown neighbors, friends and community. What happened to George Floyd, Ahmed Aubrey, and Breonna Taylor as well as the many others, is abhorrent and unacceptable. The Arc stands in solidarity with communities of color and victims of police brutality, those with disabilities and those without. We recognize the importance of listening to and hearing individuals who have experienced horrific injustices, and we commit ourselves to furthering our work as a civil and human rights organization. All people, without exception, should be able to access their community without fear. All people, without exception, should be able to engage in everyday activities without being policed. The disability rights movement is grounded on freedom and independence – just as racial equality, these principles are civil and human rights. We stand for the rights of all people to live, work, learn, love, and play without fear.   

El Arc del Condado Adams, así como las otras sucursales del Arc en Colorado, siempre han sido y seguirán siendo organizaciones que defienden los derechos humanos y civiles de las personas. Estamos profundamente dolidos  y desconsolados por los actos de violencia e injusticia racial que afectan a nuestros vecinos y amigos de la comunidad de personas de color.

Lo que le sucedió a George Floyd, Ahmed Aubrey y Breonna Taylor, así como a muchos otros, es aborrecible e inaceptable. El Arc se solidariza con nuestras comunidades de color y con las víctimas de  brutalidad policial, personas con discapacidades o no.

Reconocemos la importancia de escuchar a las personas que han sufrido injusticias horribles, y nos comprometemos a continuar y expandir nuestro trabajo como organización civil y de derechos humanos. Todas las personas, sin excepción, deberían tener libre acceso a su comunidad sin sentir ningún temor. Todas las personas, sin excepción, deberían participar en sus actividades cotidianas sin sentirse que están siendo constantemente vigiladas. El movimiento por los derechos de las personas con discapacidades tiene como bases principales la libertad y la independencia; al igual que la igualdad racial, estos principios son derechos humanos y civiles. 

Defendemos  los derechos de todas las personas a vivir, trabajar, aprender, amar y jugar sin miedo.
