The Arc is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization formed in 1984 to insure that all children and adults with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities are valued and included, not excluded because they are different.
Our goal is to provide the supports that will allow all children with developmental disabilities to have the same experiences that all children should have as they grow up.
First and foremost, The Arc of Greater Houston serves as the voice of all those who cannot speak for themselves, but who just want to live in and be part of their own community.
The Arc of Greater Houston works hard to respond to the real-life needs of every child and every family who experiences mental retardation and any other related disabilities.
We work to dispel the myths surrounding mental retardation, and we advocate for better access to education, employment, housing, and recreation- simply a better quality of life!
