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.
