75 Years of Impact: Celebrating The Arc of the Capital Area’s Legacy



For seven and a half decades, The Arc of the Capital Area has been at the forefront of transformative change in the intellectual and developmental disability space. With unwavering dedication, they have championed the rights, opportunities, and well-being of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Over these 75 years, The Arc has not only provided essential services, support, and advocacy but has also been a driving force behind crucial policy advancements that have improved the lives of countless individuals and their families. This remarkable journey has been marked by milestones of progress, fostering inclusivity, enhancing access to education, promoting employment opportunities, and ensuring that every person, regardless of their abilities, has the chance to live a fulfilling and dignified life. As we celebrate this extraordinary legacy, we reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and look forward to the future, knowing that The Arc’s impact will continue to resonate for generations to come.
