Our Community Life & Advocacy programming is unique in the region and receives NO state or federal funding. Our supervised programs and activities let participants socialize and have fun with their peers, receive help and support with personal issues, teach life skills and job preparation, and include a civic participation component in which participant volunteers donate over 1,500 hours of service to area organizations. We depend on you to help people with IDD continue to do great things in our community.

The Arc Quinebaug Valley and The Arc New London County merged in July 2019 to form The Arc Eastern Connecticut.  Both agencies were established in 1952 by parents of children with intellectual disabilities in order to ensure equal participation and choice in school, in the workplace, and in their communities. Combining program and staff strengths, The Arc Eastern Connecticut now serves the entire eastern CT region and is the largest chapter of The Arc in the state.
