The Arc of Augusta 

The Arc of Augusta is a local chapter in Virginia and is affiliated with The Arc of Virginia and The Arc of the United States. When you join our local chapter, you automatically become a member of both The Arc of Virginia and The Arc of the United States and are eligible for the benefits and privileges of membership in these organizations as well as those of our local chapter.

We have three main areas of focus: Advocacy, Education and Programs.

Advocacy is a key component of our identity as The Arc of Augusta. We speak out on issues that affect people with intellectual and related developmental disabilities and their families. But more importantly, we help people with disabilities, family members, friends, and others become advocates themselves.

Education: The Arc of Augusta has worked tirelessly to both provide educational opportunities for our membership and for the general public, and to create and maintain awareness of the issues facing individuals with developmental disabilities.

Programs: The Arc of Augusta operates two adult day support programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are a licensed provider and we also accept individuals into our programs regardless of their ability to pay.

We believe a difference can be made in the lives of people with disabilities. By communicating with legislators and by generally educating them about disability issues, it is possible to help shape policy and law at the federal, state, or local level.

Please join us! Join The Arc of Augusta in making our vision of a community where people with disabilities are valued as classmates, coworkers, neighbors, citizens, and friends come true!
