The Arc Kent County works to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are valued in order that they and their families fully participate in and contribute to their community.
It is our vision that all people realize and fulfill their dreams of having employment, education, meaningful relationships and living independently within their community
With education and awareness comes understanding and acceptance. The Arc Kent County views increased public awareness as one of the major components to greater understanding and community acceptance of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. To this end, The Arc Kent County staff provides members, families, professionals, organizations, and the community-at-large with direct and indirect information about intellectual and developmental disabilities.
