Our Mission and Impact

The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties champions a life of inclusion, opportunity, and equity for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) through advocacy, education, and supports. The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties envisions that all people with IDD are valued, respected, and fully included members of their community with the right to choose where they live, learn, work, and play. We align with The Arc of U.S. and The Arc of Pennsylvania in our beliefs around human dignity, personhood, choice, rights, community, support, equity, and diversity.

Who We Are

The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties works passionately to champion a life of inclusion, opportunity and equity as we advocate for, educate, serve, and support children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families. We strive to ensure that all people with IDD have access to high quality programs which are responsive to their needs and that they are valued, respected and fully included members of our Lehigh Valley communities with the right to choose where they live, learn, work, and play.

What We Do

We are working to create a more inclusive and accessible future for people with IDD across the Lehigh Valley. Through our Advocacy department, SPARC Program and Agency with Choice Program, The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties serves over 1,500 Pennsylvanians with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages each year.

What You Can Do

Each day, Pennsylvanians with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families face obstacles to their inclusion in our Lehigh Valley communities, schools, and places of employment. With your help today, we can continue to work on breaking down these barriers and creating a more inclusive community for individuals and families with IDD!
