Our mission is to promote and incite growth for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities as a result of personal preference, action, instruction, and inclusion.
Located in the Kingman service area, The Arc of Mohave County, a private, nonprofit 501 (C ) 3 organization , supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through education and advocacy.
Created in April, 1970 by parents who were concerned about the lack of life options available in Mohave County for adults with IDDs, The Arc of Mohave County now serves over 45 individuals per year, providing a safe and creative environment to learn like skills and develop personal growth.
We partner with both The Arc of Arizona, at the state level, and The Arc of the United States, at the National level. We are licensed and funded primarily by the State of Arizona Department of Economic Security Division of Developmental Disabilities (DES/DDD).
The Arc of Mohave County is devoted to the Standard that all intellectually and developmentally disabled persons, regardless of disability, deserves the right to experience as quality and normal life possible. This entails offering to all members a variety and continuum of educational, vocational, and recreational community-based opportunities. We believe in the private nonprofit concept of service provision. Inherent to this belief is the commitment to serve all persons referred regardless of degree of handicap or availability of space and service.
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.
