Arc/Morris is dedicated to the care, support, and advancement of people with intellectual and related developmental disabilities and their families.

What Is Arc/Morris?

Arc/Morris assists people with intellectual disabilities and their families by providing services and information in a caring and sensitive manner. We help the individuals we serve lead fuller lives and make positive contributions to their communities through activities and programs that welcome everyone with a family atmosphere. Parents and families founded Arc/Morris to provide help for their loved ones, and we have never forgotten how important family ties are. We treat our individuals and families as our own.

"We are so happy with how Amanda has grown this past year and increased her independence. Hazelene has been helping her learn to cook for herself. I think she looks at Elton as a substitute grandfather and Ketou as a big brother. She has developed special bonds with them. When we reflect on the past four years, we never would have imagined a world like this but we also never imagined that Amanda would be living in a place where she is so safe and cared for. Thank you for everything!"
