Value and Acceptance for All
MidState Arc's mission is to support and advocate for children and adults with developmental disabilities to reach their full potential and become accepted and respected members of their community and to advocate and support their families.
Founded by families in 1952 and still operated with a great deal of input from families today, our non profit 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, lead more independent and fulfilling lives, and meet the challenges of daily life.
Respected and Contributing Members of the Community
Our agency offers full range of supports: Day supports, Residential, Employment and Individualized services. At all levels, we create our programs to meet the needs and desires of the people we support.
