The Mission of the Arc of Lucas County is to provide support and education for people with developmental disabilities and their families. We advocate for human rights, personal dignity and community participation of individuals with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities through information, education, family involvement, legislative and social action.
Our values are based on the concept that all people, regardless of ability, have the right to be productive, interdependent members of their respective communities and the society at large.
The Arc recognizes the fundamental role of families in making choices and decisions for their minor children.
The Arc also holds that individuals, who are adults, have the right to make their own choices concerning where and with whom they will live, and how they will spend their time, regardless of their abilities.
