About The Arc

Established in 1953 by parents wanting to create opportunities for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Arc opens doors and unlocks potential for consumers of all ages. Providing advocacy and access to educational, vocational, recreational and critical life skills programs, The Arc is an essential resource for consumers, their families and the community.


The Arc of Dauphin County is a non-profit, family focused, membership organization that provides individualized, community-based services to support the dignity and respect of people of all ages who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
