All of us want to be productive and independent, while making a meaningful contribution to the community. 

The Greater Richmond ARC knows how difficult it can be to find opportunities to achieve your goals and dreams when you face monumental challenges. 

We can help. 

ARC was established in 1954 by families for families. Since that time we have grown into a respected organization. Each year we help over 1,400 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We remain dedicated to creating opportunities for everyone in the community. We want you and your family to grow to your fullest potential.
