The Arc of Augusta works to improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through community activities and advocacy.


The Arc of Augusta is committed to education, awareness, advocacy and providing services for all children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in the Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County areas.

What We Do

Welcome! For nearly 60 years, The Arc of Augusta has existed as a non-profit organization. Together with our members, self-advocates, and the Board of Directors, we advocate for and support individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.  We work to foster respect and protection of human rights of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families.  Everyone is a valued, contributing member of their community.
Here at The Arc of Augusta, we also operate two Group Day Support Programs for adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in our community.  Participants volunteer, make crafts, explore different parts of the Shenandoah Valley, eat together at local restaurants, and celebrate a variety of events together. Do you want to know more or are looking for an opportunity for an individual who wants to come to our Group Day Support Programs? Then please call Jackie Miller, Program Manager at (540) 943-1618.
