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 provides services and supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that they can achieve the lives that they want to live. 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 accessible place for everyone to live.

The Arc is conducting a survey to help prepare The Arc’s leaders in a strategic planning that will guide The Arc’s direction and focus over the next 3-5 years. Your opinion is important. You can shape the programs and services you care about. Please take 15 minutes to complete the survey and shape our future. Thank you!


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.”
