Journey with us…

Since 1936, The Arc of Washington State has been a champion for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families. What started as a small group of parents in Pierce and King Counties has grown into a statewide grassroots advocacy network of individuals, family members, service providers and other interested community members.


By 1950, families were looking for more community services to help keep their child at home and The Arc (national chapter) was born. Today, our state chapter continues to advocate for necessary state services and supports for families on their journey to create a fulfilling life in the community for their loved ones.
