The Arc of Tri-Cities Mission
"The Arc of Tri-Cities promotes the rights of all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by actively supporting full inclusion and participation in all aspects of the community throughout their lifetime".
Since 1954 The Arc of Tri-Cities has been a provider of services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Benton and Franklin Counties. It all began with the determination of a few families, who, wanting a better way of life for their child with a developmental disability, opened up an educational facility and a sports club. Today The Arc of Tri-Cities is proud to offer over 14 different services in our area, serving more than 1,400 individuals in a year!
Here at The Arc of Tri-Cities our vision is simple- to provide leadership, advocacy, and opportunities that enable persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families to enhance the quality of their lives. To this end, all of our services help to advance the skill levels of our participants: promote inclusion, integration, and socialization, and encourage independence.
