Advocacy

We all want to improve the quality of life for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. That’s why The Arc of Palm Beach County supports advocacy, education, research, and awareness so that the children and adults we work with can participate as active citizens of our democracy and active members of our community.

The Arc of Florida and The Arc in Washington, DC. are our partners in creating a network of human service agencies to ensure the strongest civil rights for those with more than 100 different diagnoses including autism, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, and various other developmental disabilities. They work on public policies and developing high-quality support for Arc chapters like ours.
