Arc chapters throughout New York are continuously facing budget reductions which threaten the entire structure of how we operate.  Please help us by joining our membership campaign.  Your membership helps NYSARC chapters to:

  • Influence policy and funding decisions of county legislators, boards of education, community services boards, village and city administration
  • Advocate for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities
  • Fund information, education, advocacy and support programs for parents, family members and the general public
  • Help people with developmental or intellectual disabilities plan for their own services
  • Find volunteers for critical programs and policy efforts
  • Develop legislative agenda that reflects the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • Provide leadership and training opportunities
  • Build coalitions with parents and professional organizations in planning and implementing public policy on a statewide level
