Our designated organization is the
ARC of Western Wayne County | Goal: $1,000
About the Charity
The Arc of Western Wayne County was founded by parents in 1954. Almost no educational, employment or recreational opportunities were available in the late 1950’s for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities living in southwestern Wayne County, and families were commonly encouraged to institutionalize their children. Small groups of parents chose to seek alternative solutions for their children, and began to band together with other parents across the state of Michigan with a common goal and commitment to “promote the general welfare of people with mental retardation.”
In the beginning, The Arc of Western Wayne County chose to channel its efforts to meeting the immediate needs through direct service. Today, as we continue to keep in step with the social and political climate, our mission has not wavered. We realize that the success of our founders was their simplicity. Their mission remains close to our hearts, grounded in values and beliefs that demand a better life for children and adults with disabilities.
Mission: The Arc Western Wayne County advocates for the rights and full participation of all children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Arc Western Wayne County will:
- Provide effective advocacy to meet the changing needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families in the community
- Influence the awareness and attitudes of the community about the people with disabilities and our organization
- Increase collaboration with other agencies in order to maintain our flexibility and influence in the community
With your donation, The Arc will be able to continue their work to protect the rights of people with disabilities and support their full inclusion and participation in the community. Your gift helps us as we work to ensure that every individual with an intellectual and developmental disability is living the life they want in their community.
