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.

View The R-Word Documentary Inside the Arc Park

The Arc Families Connected will host a viewing of the documentary, The R-Word, on Saturday, June 25, with a conversation afterward.

The R-Word explores the history of the word ‘retard(ed),’ the cultural representation, and the challenges and triumphs of people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

Bring a chair or blanket and join us on the lawn inside the Arc Park amphitheater on June 25 from 6-8 p.m. to watch this documentary.
