Welcome to The Arc of Colorado!
All people in Colorado with developmental disabilities will have choices in how they live, learn, work, worship and play.
The Arc of Colorado believes that: All people have moral and civil rights providing them with opportunities to love, work, play, learn and worship in communities where they choose to live. All people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have inherent value with individual strengths and abilities, are equal before the law and must be treated with dignity and respect.
The Arc of Colorado builds better lives for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families by improving connections to schools, work and the community.
We do this by...
- Influencing public policy to ensure the necessary supports and services are in place for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have a common life
- Increasing public awareness of the rights and needs of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities
- Supporting and developing local chapters
- Collaborating with national, state and local organizations sharing the same values
