The Arc Tennessee
plays a crucial role in advocacy and services across the state.

The Arc is a nonprofit, national federation that includes The Arc of the United States, state chapters, and local chapters. While all chapters work in support of the same mission, each plays a different role in accomplishing this mission. The Arc Tennessee is the state chapter, and we exist primarily to provide individual and family advocacy. We are committed to positively impacting the system of services that support the disability community.

Our 15 local chapters exist primarily to provide direct services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. These services vary from chapter to chapter but may include any of the following: case management, employment supports, personal assistance, residential supports, respite, early intervention, training and education.
