By being a member of The Arc TN, my family has the opportunity to become informed at a local and national level about the latest events, conferences, public policy issues, etc. that directly affect our family. The Arc TN employees a team dedicated to advocating for individuals with disabilities, which gives individuals an opportunity to live a fulfilling life.
My family and I have been members of The Arc for more than 30 years and I’ve had the opportunity to serve in a leadership position at the local, state and national levels. The Arc makes such a positive difference locally, statewide and nationally for people with disabilities, their families and communities.
Being a member of The Arc TN is more than just showing support for people with I/DD. It’s an opportunity for me to grow within the I/DD community and help others along the way.
