The Future's So Bright!

Too often, society can overlook of the enormous potential that lies within individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Not here at The Arc Central Chesapeake Region!

We strongly believe in the talents and abilities of each person who receives our services and work as a team with families, doctors, nurses, staff and the individuals themselves to ensure a bright future.

Our goal is simple:  maximize opportunities and minimize challenges and obstacles in their lives, and the lives of their family members.

Great strides happen each and every day in the acceptance, respect, education and employment of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc Central Chesapeake Region is proud to help lead the way.
