Our Mission

To empower people with developmental disabilities in Shiawassee, Ingham, Clinton, and Eaton counties to participate in and be fully included in the community.

Our Vision

The Arc leads by articulating a positive vision for the future of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and catalyzes public and private support in realization of that vision through carefully planned and well-executed goals, strategies and actions.


At the Arc we believe that all individuals with IDD have human dignity, personhood, and rights. Some of these rights are the ability to make life choices for themselves, the right to be involved in the community and the right to support when needed.

People First

We believe that people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities, and inherent value. Not by their disability.

Label Jars...

Not people. The one thing we all have in common for sure, is emotion. So always be kind.

How do we achieve this?

By offering a variety of services and programs to our community!

Payee Services

"We offer money management services through our Representative Payee Program."


"We offer Guardianship services for those that truly need help through life"


"We offer fun engaging programs and events year round."
