Community Advocates for Change
As an organization, we advocate for each individual and their family to secure the resources and services they need. With increasing determination, we’re empowering the individual with IDD to express their own views and become their own advocates for the lives they want to live.

In the Community
We are creating IDD friendly communities where individuals feel supported and included, while enjoying a good quality of life. By partnering with local businesses, corporations, nonprofits, and other community organizations, we open the doors for each individual to engage in the ways they want to.
The MidState Arc team empowers each individual living with IDD to achieve their unique goals by forging connections through employment, volunteerism, participating in the community, and everything in between.

Working through the X and Y (check with Pam/Maritza)
MidState Arc has been supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1952. We’ve been influential in the national Arc movement, collaborating with other Arc chapters to innovate and shape how we support people with IDD.
Our staff members and individuals with IDD have testified at our nation’s Capital, and the Arc was invited into the House of Representatives in recognition of the great work they do for people with intellectual disabilities.
