About The Arc Oregon

Our mission at The Arc Oregon is to promote and defend the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and actively support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

We strive to accomplish our mission through our long-standing, statewide programs and services for people with IDD, as well as a variety of special projects designed to meet the immediate needs of people with IDD and to address issues they are facing in their lives and communities. To learn more about the project we are hoping to fund with this special fundraising campaign, please visit the "Our Project" tab.

When you donate to The Arc Oregon your gift helps us continue fighting for the rights of people with IDD at every opportunity. Thanks to your constant support, we have already achieved so much this year! 

These are just some of the ways we have put your money to work so far in 2021:

  • Advocated for equitable treatment of people with IDD
  • Worked with legislators and community partners to make a difference during Oregon's legislative session
  • Fought to increase Direct Support Profesional (DSP) wages to stabilize the DSP workforce
  • Testified in support of Senate Bill 567 against discrimination in health care
  • Provided free registration to self-advocates and their family members; providing them opportunities to connect as a community and to attend webinars and workshops on learning how to adapt, grow and thrive

With your support, we will be able to increase our focus on advocacy, public policy, and education by offering critical programs and services and fighting for positive change on behalf of more than 60,000 Oregonians who experience IDD. You make the difference!
