Ways to Give

Why Give to The Arc Central Chesapeake Region?

When you give to The Arc, you become part of a movement that creates greater equity and access and finds innovative approaches to solving the most pressing community needs. Your gift gets us all one step closer to living in the fully inclusive communities we need and deserve where everyone has access to the resources they need.

We don’t need you to keep the lights on. We need your help to create real change in our community. Since 1961, The Arc Central Chesapeake Region has removed barriers and created opportunities for thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be included in their communities.

What does your gift support?

Your gift to The Arc supports two critical initiatives: Children, Youth & Their Families services and innovation. 

Child-centered services are life-changing; the earlier children, youth, and their families have access to them, the better outcomes they see throughout their lives. Unlike other programs, Children, Youth  and  Their Families have no dedicated funding source. We provide these services to the community because we know how critical they are. Your generous support ensures these services are available for the people who need them most.

When we say innovation, we mean our continuous efforts to develop new programs, improve existing services, and find creative solutions to the challenges our communities face. Your gift creates change because it allows us to continue to break barriers and find creative solutions that meet the needs of your community. Whether that’s closing the gap in mental health services, increasing the amount of affordable housing throughout the community, or empowering families with tools and knowledge to support their children, your gift gets us all one step closer to living in fully inclusive communities where everyone has access to the resources they need.
