The Arc of Ohio works to create a world where children and adults with developmental & intellectual disabilities have and enjoy equal rights and opportunities. They recognize the fundamental roles of families in making choices and decisions for their children. They also hold that individuals, who are adults, have the right to make their own choices concerning where and with whom they will live, and how they will spend their time, regardless of ability.
The Arc of Ohio is a statewide membership association made up of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, friends, interested citizens and professionals in the disability field. Together with their individual members and local chapters, they represent more than 330,000 Ohioans with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
