Our History

The Arc was founded in 1953 and is a not for profit organization (IRS 501(c)(3)) operated by a twelve member voluntary board of directors.  The Arc of Iroquois County provides service, support, and advocacy for 140 people with developmental disabilities and their families.  We are a member unit of The Arc of the United States and Illinois.  Our history of ongoing growth and development has provided the foundation on which we are working with people to design and implement their futures.

Our Mission

The Arc inspires and empowers individuals to pursue opportunities to live their lives to the fullest .


We focus on making the maximum positive effort for the individuals we support. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Community centered services allow individuals to remain active members of their family as long as possible and to participate in the life of the community.  Each person may choose to receive services in their own home, a community setting, or one of The Arc’s settings.  Services include respite, day and vocational, family support, transportation, and Community Integrated Living Arrangements.
