Membership

The annual 2021 Membership Campaign is being held this year through the month of June.

Why is YOUR membership so important to us?

Although membership in The Arc of Rensselaer County may only cost a few dollars, it plays an important role in this agency’s efforts to advocate for and support hundreds of children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.

  • Increased membership results in more clout and a stronger voice to influence state legislators and national policy makers.
  • Membership helps provide more individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, access to programs and services through fundraising and advocacy efforts. v Membership helps to recruit needed volunteers. As more volunteers are attracted to our work and mission, The Arc’s leadership base for the future can develop and grow.
  • Your membership increases awareness leading to a better informed public. This is a critical step in creating society-wide acceptance of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • As a member, you will help The Arc fulfill the many commitments to those they support. Membership dues generate funds to get the job done locally as well as on state and national levels.
  • Membership is the basic foundation on which The Arc of Rensselaer County, our State Organization (NYSARC, Inc.) and the National Association (The Arc) were established.

YOU do make a difference in someone’s life!

Your membership has a positive impact on the quality of life of people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. Please support us through your annual membership, and encourage a friend or a neighbor to join as well! Download the Membership Brochure and share!

Testimonials and Success Stories

I choose to work at the ARC of Rensselaer because of how we do our work. I have been with many other agencies, and none of them put the welfare of the people we support in the forefront as much as we do. Every day I am witness to people and staff making life richer, happier and more meaningful. We really do connect people to their community in a way that fosters importance and relationships. The old adage that “I get more than I give” rings true at the ARC of Rensselaer
