Your Contributions Support The Arc of Essex County

Ignited by a desire to ensure a better future for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a group of parents banded together in 1948 to establish The Arc of Essex County. Seventy-five years later, The Arc legacy continues, with programs that span the lives of those we serve, including early intervention services, Stepping Stones School, Camp Hope, day programs, group homes, recreational activities, respite, Studio Arc, and more.
