We strive to improve outcomes for people
who experience disabilities by helping them live meaningful lives, be gainfully employed, and recreate in the communities in which they live.
Welcome to The Arc Lane County!
The aspirations of people who experience an intellectual and/or developmental disability (I/DD) are high. Just like their peers, people who experience disabilities want to live and work and be valued members of their communities. The Arc Lane County helps children, youth and adults who experience disabilities and their families live full and meaningful lives in their community.
