WELCOME TO THE ARC OF THE GULF COAST

The Arc of the Gulf Coast supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

      VISION

      A world where people with disabilities are included in their communities and neighborhoods and where quality supports and services respond to their needs and personal choices.

      MISSION
      The Arc of the Gulf Coast supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in their quest for self-determination, ensuring that they have meaningful lives in the communities where they live, learn, work, play and worship – responding to their needs, one person at a time.
      HISTORY

      Since our founding in 1950 by a group of parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Arc at the local, state and national level has been instrumental in the creation of virtually every program, service, right, and benefit that is now available to more than half a million Texans with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Today, The Arc continues to advocate for including people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in all aspects of society.
