Mohave County Arc is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing teaching and support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Kingman / Golden Valley.
First conceived in 1970 as “Kingman Arc”, by a group of parents who wanted to provide life options for their adult children with disabilities, Mohave County Arc now proudly serves over 35 individuals per year.
Our mission is to facilitate growth for people with disabilities through choice, experience, guidance, and respect.
We are licensed and funded primarily by the State of Arizona Department of Economic Security Division of Developmental Disabilities (DES/DDD). At the State & National level, we proudly partner with The Arc of Arizona and Arc of the United States.
The philosophy of Mohave County Arc is based on the belief that all people have opportunities to see and enjoy their greatest potential. It is our role to provide and facilitate options and activities individually designed to enhance the independence of each individual we support. We believe that this process should be done with the utmost of consideration to the choice and dignity of the individual and members of their support system.
The Arc was founded on the belief that all developmentally disabled persons, regardless of disabilities, deserve the right to experience as quality and normal a life as possible. It is the goal of The Arc to provide training and opportunities that will maximize growth towards the greatest independence possible for each individual.
The Arc offers programs and services that support and enhance consumer independence, self-esteem, mutual respect, value and dignity. We provide activities, training and supervision to promote skill development and independence, communication and social relationships.
