We Need Your Help

Community Services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are at risk! Cuts in state funding may reduce or eliminate services for consumers and families. Waiting lists continue to grow as are placements in state centers for developmentally disabled. This is wrong.

We are asking you to join The Arc and reach out to public officials. Samples of a script with talking points, letters from a Friend of the Arc, Board Member, Family and Employees and the list of Legislators/Public Officials are linked below. Please feel free to make the information your own. Also, If you would pass the website along to family, friends, neighbors and ask for their assistance. Thank you for everything you do.


"These are Draconian cuts that will directly affect people with disabilities. They're a target,"
Donald Broderick stated in The Sunday Times article "Bracing for a Hit" dated February 5, 2012
