February is for Members

For over 60 years, The Arc has been at the forefront of civil rights and inclusion of people with IDD. We have fought to close institutions, open school doors, and provide access to community supports.

In addition to influencing public policy, The Arc of Delaware maintains 83 safe and affordable neighborhood homes while providing employment support and assisting individuals with urgent needs. Our dances and other recreational events provide much-needed opportunities for fun and socialization each month. And this year, we’re starting a new initiative led by self-advocates!

Cheerful diverse people together in the parkToday, The Arc of Delaware invites everyone who supports people with IDD and believes in our mission to achieve with us by becoming a member in 2022.

We need you and welcome your voice as we build a larger, stronger movement of people with disabilities, parents, siblings, and allies to protect the rights and promote the full inclusion of people with IDD throughout their lifetimes.

Benefits of membership include statewide support, e-newsletters and alerts, voting rights at our annual meeting, automatic enrollment in The Arc of the U.S., and more.
