The Arc of Blair County

The Arc of Blair County believes that persons with developmental disabilities are valuable members of society and have the same rights as all citizens. They have the right to a free and appropriate education in an integrated setting, the right to live in a comfortable residence in their own local community, the right to protection from health and safety hazards in their environment, the right to work at a meaningful wage in a vocation appropriate to their talents, the right to social and personal relationships and the right to participate in the recreational and cultural activities of their community. It is the vision of Arc of Blair County to foster, protect and nurture these rights.

The Arc of Blair County serves as an important voice for persons with disabilities and their families.

Five-Thousand Dollar Goal

          The Arc has had a very generous offer of a $5,000 donation to establish a trust fund if The Arc can secure the remaining $5,000 over the next 6 months. The goal is to obtain $10,000 to place into a trust through the Central Pennsylvania Community Foundation ensuring the future of The Arc. The Board of Directors has voted to establish a community foundation trust with the expectation the fund will continue to grow through the stock market. The interest from the trust could then be used to assist families and self advocates with needs and to ensure the longevity and existence of The Arc of Blair County. The matching gifts can be as little as a $10 donation as long as The Arc raises $5,000 within the next 6 months.  All donations should be sent to The Arc earmarked "Trust Fund".
