Since 1953 The Arc of Story County has strived to enrich the lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities as they learn, work, play and grow within the community. Through advocacy and services we will support persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

The Arc invites you to come “Achieve with us.”

The Arc of Story County is an advocacy based non-profit organization serving Story County, based in Ames, Iowa. The Arc provides services which partner with local businesses, providers and community members to enrich the lives of people with disabilities.

The Arc was established in 1953 by a core group of families advocating for their children. It is still that same drive to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community that allows US to be a leader in advocacy and services.

Thank you taking the time to acquaint yourself with our mission, programs, and volunteer opportunities.
