The Arc of Indian River County
Providing support and hope for individuals and families with special needs
The Arc is more than a building or set of programs – The Arc is a belief. A belief that people with special needs should not be defined by those limitations. That each individual has the right to develop and be recognized for his or her own strengths, abilities, and inherent value. The Arc promotes and protects the rights of people with special needs and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community.
The Arc of Indian River County has followed this belief since 1975 and is the only organization in Indian River County with comprehensive programs that provide hope and support every day to 180 special needs individuals and families in our community. These efforts include advocacy, education, and recreation programs, as well as residential programs, family and employment support.
