The Arc of Rensselaer County

The mission of The Arc of Rensselaer County is to advocate for the rights and safety of individuals of all ages who have an intellectual disability and/or a developmental disability or delay.

The Arc is a source of support, specialized knowledge, and available resources in assisting individuals and their families to meet their needs and goals.

The Arc works to influence societal attitudes and governmental policy so that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will have access to the services, assistance, and opportunities they need for personal growth and development, and participation in the community.

Testimonials and Success Stories

I have been with this agency for nearly 39 years, and it has offered me a professional and personal experience of continuous learning. I am so appreciative of what this agency has meant in my life and the opportunity it has given me to be in service to others. My wish for new staff joining our team is that they immerse themselves in the available learning opportunities, and learn that the rewards found in the agency go much deeper than the paycheck.
