The Arc of North Central Iowa is an organization committed to the welfare of all children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. The Arc has a rich history in advocacy and services. Membership is comprised of individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, family members, professionals in the field of disability, and other concerned citizens.
The Arc of North Central Iowa began over 45 years ago in Mason City.
In 1996 we incorporated into the Arc of North Central Iowa and now cover several counties in the North Central Iowa region.
Our Arc believes that the governing bodies and citizens of North Iowa have done a good job of providing residential options for persons with disabilities. We have a wide array of vocational opportunities available for the young persons who graduate from high school today. The Arc works to provide recreation and leisure activities to round out the lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Wherever possible, inclusive activities are encouraged and sponsored.
Advocacy is a key word for members of the Arc of North Central Iowa. Through collaboration with the agencies and organizations serving persons with disabilities, we are able to help. We are a membership organization dedicated to the advocating and empowering people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to participate fully in community life.
The Arc operates solely on membership dues, donations and fundraising.
