By supporting a specific Arc project, you’re directly involved in one of the many areas in which we’re helping people with IDD live their best lives.

Cookies are our Business!

The Arc ECT’s Classic Crunch chocolate chip cookies are now sold in over 20 stores throughout southeastern Connecticut. Help this budding micro-enterprise and valuable job-training program continue to grow and expand.

Empowerment and Enrichment

Part of the Community Life & Advocacy program’s activities include six Empowerment/Enrichment groups, which introduce participants to the concept of viewing themselves as part of a broader community in which they have a voice, an interest, and a right of inclusion.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project

Help the Agriculture/Farm Stand micro-enterprise maximize its garden space with raised beds, shelving for our greenhouse, and a dedicated generator for the aquaponics facility—upgrades that will let us provide additional weekly vegetable shares for up to 30 families and create additional employment training opportunities for people with IDD.

Capitol Improvement

One of our supported group residences is in desperate need of a new roof.

Please help make sure everyone stays warm and dry!
