The Arc of the Quad Cities Area’s mission is to empower people with disabilities to believe in their own unique abilities and achieve their full potential by providing quality, innovative services that focus on advocacy, independence, employment, meaningful community life, and personal happiness.

The Arc promotes the equal treatment of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in community life and supports an individual’s interests so as to make available their full productive and creative capacities. The Arc has been serving the Quad Cities Area since 1952. We are proud of the accomplishments we have made to make the Quad Cities a more welcoming and inclusive place for everyone to live.

Staff Testimonial

Smiling staff member of The Arc of the Quad Cities Area“The individuals here are amazing to work with. There is never a dull moment. It is a pleasure to work at a place that is so friendly and comfortable. You just wouldn’t want to work anywhere else. I had no idea that there was an organization that does anything like helping out people with people with disabilities. They are very flexible with their work schedule and the benefits of working here are great.”
