Our Mission

The Arc of the Quad Cities Area’s mission is to live and work in partnership with the community to support individuals with developmental and other disabilities, through a variety of support services. The Arc has been servicing the Quad Cities since 1952, founded by a group of parents who wanted their children’s rights recognized and their independence encouraged. Since that time, The Arc has grown in size and scope to become a leading advocate and comprehensive service provider for individuals with disabilities. The Arc is proud of the accomplishments it has made to expand opportunities available to individuals with disabilities in the Quad Cities Area.

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.”
