Every chapter of The Arc is an independent 501c3 organization focused on providing supports and services designed to meet the needs of local communities throughout Oregon. Chapters vary in size and scope of services offered, but all chapters work as advocates to ensure people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the opportunity to live self-determined lives, with the dignity and respect they deserve.
