How Your Donation Helps

The Arc of Waterbury, CT works with and for people who have or are at risk for developmental disabilities to promote full participation in areas of life in our community. The Arc seeks to accomplish this through advocacy, education, and collaboration, as well as through provision of quality supports to individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and the community.

The Waterbury Arc Inc. is a private, nonprofit organization that was founded in 1950 by a group of concerned parents who wanted appropriate educational and vocational services for their children with mental retardation. It was incorporated in 1952 as the “Parents and Friends of Retarded Children”, and was later renamed the “Waterbury Association for Retarded Citizens, Inc” (WARC), as a local chapter of the National Association for Retarded Citizens.

Over the years, The Waterbury Arc has grown and expanded to serve the needs of children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Waterbury, Bethlehem, Middlebury, Morris, Naugatuck, Plymouth, Prospect, Southbury, Thomaston, Watertown, Wolcott, and Woodbury. It strives to offer numerous opportunities by providing updated services and innovative programs, thereby encouraging each individual to reach their full potential.
