2016 Annual Campaign

Dear Friend,r

With the help of donors like you, we have been able to provide advocacy, services and programs to thousands of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families throughout Delaware. While those with I/DD strive to become self-sufficient, they have numerous challenges and need support and assistance. We hope you will consider donating to The Arc so that we may continue these vital services and supports for individuals like Roslyn (pictured right, with her husband).
