The Arc of Mississippi works to include all children and adults with cognitive,intellectual, and developmental disabilities in every community. We focus on abilities, respect, choice for all and encourage active citizenship and inclusion in every community.
°One of every ten families in America has a member with an intellectual and developmental disability.
°There are more than 7.5 million people in the U.S. with an intellectual and developmental disability.
°Cognitive/intellectual disability is a condition, not a disease.
The Arc works to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the supports they need to live an ordinary, decent American life:
°People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families are valued,respected and included in all communities.
°People with intellectual and developmental disabilities direct their own lives.
°People choose their services and supports from many available sources.
°People are empowered through nonprofit advocacy. State and federal governments administer programs and set budgets that meet everyone’s needs.
