The Arc of Macomb County is a CARF accredited, 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership association composed of people with disabilities, parents, friends and professionals involved with supporting people with disabilities in Macomb County, Michigan.
The Arc exists to assure that people with disabilities are valued and that they and their families can participate fully in, and contribute to, the life of their communities.
We are committed to securing, for all people with disabilities, the opportunities to choose and realize their goals and dreams regarding where and how they learn, live, play, and work.
The Arc of Macomb (The Arc) will be a "culture of excellence" in the provision of support for anyone associated with The Arc.
We will work until we achieve a society where every person is able to sustain their own experience of companionship, connectedness and community. We envision, one day, that every person is valued and treated with dignity and respect in their environment and their community. We will engender a sense of safety for all persons with disabilities, by increasing daily positive interactions and decreasing unnecessary demands.
