Value and Acceptance for All

MidState Arc is a nonprofit dedicated to enabling people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling  lives.

Founded by families in 1952 and still operated with a great deal of input from families today, our agency supports hundreds of people in 26 Connecticut towns surrounding our headquarters in Meriden. Through residential services, employment and volunteer programs, children’s programs and more, we empower people with disabilities to develop skills, form meaningful social relationships, contribute to their community and meet the challenges of daily life.


As independent as each is capable

Our agency offers three levels of services: day programs, residential services, and individualized services. At all levels, we create our programs to meet the needs and desires of the people we support.
