INSPIRING HOPE

Since 1952, The Arc of Washington County has fostered an inclusive community that celebrates independence and honor for children and adults with a wide range of intellectual and developmental disabilities. With each individual, we strive to help them achieve success on their terms while encouraging new interests and maximizing opportunities along the way. We work closely with everyone who receives our services to create highly personalized programs that complement individual needs and preferences.

We are a private, non-profit local chapter of The Arc of Maryland and The Arc of The United States, the largest volunteer organization in the world devoted exclusively to improving the quality of life for all persons with developmental disabilities.
