What We Do

The Arc of Tippecanoe County is committed to all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities realizing their goals of learning, living, working and playing in their community. We do this through empowering individuals through advocacy and social opportunities, empowering their families through education and empowering their community through awareness. The Arc of Tippecanoe County was established in 1953 by a group of parents and professionals who wanted to change how children with intellectual and developmental disabilities were included in their community. Today The Arc of Tippecanoe County is a resource for self-advocates, family members and the community.
