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 The Arc of Story County to be a leader in advocacy and services.
