Growing a Grassroots Advocacy Movement
The Arc in Nevada is committed to all people with developmental disabilities, and works to develop programs, funding and public policy that will assist them in realizing their goals of learning, living, working, worshiping and playing in the community.
Affiliated with The Arc of the United States, The Arc in Nevada is also committed to self-advocates and families of people who have a developmental disability and works to ensure they receive the respect to which all people are entitled. In addition, The Arc in Nevada is committed to training individuals with developmental disabilities and family members on how to impact disability policy at the local, regional and state levels. These efforts are supported by the Nevada Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities.

The Arc in Nevada is committed to helping develop long-term capacity for advocates to have input and impact on issues of importance to people with developmental disabilities and their families.
