The Arc Polk County – Driven by Opportunity!

Welcome to The Arc of Polk County. A Chapter of The Arc of Oregon and The Arc of the United States. We are driven by opportunity – the opportunity for hope, for growth, for change; the opportunity for everyone to become a valued, contributing member of their community.

The Arc fosters respect and access for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, giving them the power to achieve a full and satisfying life. We strengthen people with disabilities, their parents and family members, and dedicated professionals, by connecting them across our national network of community based chapters. Our collective voice provides the opportunity for all of us to make a difference. 





The Arc Polk County programs and activities are designed to provide opportunities for families to network and share experiences. We hope that you will join us!



Community Partners are essential for the I/DD community in Polk County. We work closely with our partners to offer affordable access to community programs and activities.



We love our volunteers! Volunteers are needed at all levels of the organization and are the key to our success. Please consider donating your time and skills.



With the myriad of informational resources available today, we developed this condensed list of community resources that we feel would be most helpful for the individuals, family  and community members that we serve.
