About / Arc Chapters


The Arc Chapters

The Arc Chapters were established in the 1950s to advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities. Since their inception, the individual Arc and ACL chapters have continued to broadcast their mission and increase public awareness. The Arc and ACL Chapters are supported by arc Thrift Stores and the donations you provide. Every donation and sale goes to help individuals in your communities. Together with the chapters and your support, we will continue to support inclusion for people with developmental disabilities in your communities.

Some of the services provided by the local chapters include:

Individual Advocacy for Children and Families

  • Referrals/applications in the areas of education, Social Security, Medicaid
  • Public educational presentations regarding parental rights, legal issues, legislation and the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Advocacy support, intervention and interaction with school and special education professionals

Individual Advocacy for Adults

  • Interaction with State and local systems and monitoring services delivered by provider agencies
  • Information on housing, employment and community connections
  • Problem solving and dispute resolution
  • Provide information on public policy issues
  • Guardianship Services

Colorado Chapters 

Established in 1963 to raise funds for the local arc Thrift organization. In addition to advocacy, individual Arc and ACL Chapters and Advocacy Denver increase community and public awareness, offer counseling, and provide legislative and legal support. All of this is possible through the funding provided by the operation of arc Thrift Stores in Colorado.

Our goal is to help people with intellectual/developmental disabilities enjoy self-respect, self-determination, independence and the freedom to participate in their homes, communities and workplaces.
