The Arc of the Ozarks

Since 1964, The Arc has been enhancing the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who live, work, play and learn in our community. We believe in listening to each individual to find the best solutions that will meet their needs. Today, we offer a variety of services for individuals and families in the communities we serve.

Our Mission

To support individuals with disabilities in directing their own lives as valued members of the community.

Our Vision

To be a leader in service delivery for persons with disabilities by providing an array of supports and services to integrate them into their communities and to enhance the quality of their lives.

Our History

In 1959, a small group of parents recognized the need for services for their children with developmental disabilities. A support network was built for these children and their families resulting in the 1964 establishment of The Arc.

Today, The Arc serves individuals with a variety of disabilities. Services and programs include community living, employment, recreational, community support, educational, family advocacy, autism and therapeutic.

The Arc is affiliated with The Arc of the U.S., and our programs are accredited by CARF.
