Promoting and protecting the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supporting their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes. The Arc works every day to build a future of inclusive work, play, worship, community, travel, and more.
Northeast Arc was founded in 1954 by parents of children with developmental disabilities who wanted to raise their sons and daughters as full members of the community. By having the courage to challenge professionals who told them their children could not be educated and would not live to become adults, these parents created the systems that enabled them to attend public schools, develop friendships, reside in the neighborhoods of their choice and to earn a paycheck.
This concert is but one of the many activities provided by NortheastArc to enable every individual to fulfill their human potential across their lifetime and to be part of and contribute to the community.
