The Arc of Dauphin County

Mission Statement

The Arc of Dauphin County's mission is to enhance quality of life and community integration for individuals with special needs. Our core values are people first, equality, community, and diversity.

We are a provider of many different services to those with Special Needs including weekend respite camps, computer training, employment readiness, rep payee, advocacy (helping families and individuals to find services throughout the community as well as to better understand educational opportunities) and other educational, social and awareness programs.

The Arc's team works tirelessly to help our constituents integrate fully into the community and to become a part of the fabric of society, rather than living in isolation. Our mission underscores our work to help those with Special Needs to have the best life possible, and a life that includes achievements and advancements. We put the person first, and work with them to achieve their own prescribed aspirations. The Arc has always existed as a nonprofit, dependent upon philanthropy and fundraising activities to facilitate our programs for those we serve.
