Donation proceeds will go to The Arc of Mid-Michigan. Our Mission is to empower people with developmental disabilities to participate and be fully included in the community.
Values & History
As a chapter of The Arc of the United States and The Arc Michigan, the Arc of Mid-Michigan supports the organization’s core values.
The Arc believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability.
The Arc acts to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their parents, siblings, family members and other concerned members of the public have meaningful opportunities to inform and guide the direction of the organization’s advocacy, including determining policy and positions on important issues. The Arc strives for diversity in its leadership, as well as in all facets of the work of the organization.
The Arc leads by articulating a positive vision for the future of people with intellectual and
developmental disabilities and catalyzes public and private support in the realization of that vision through carefully planned and well-executed goals, strategies, and actions.
The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the
community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.
The Arc believes that society in general and The Arc in particular benefit from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, age, geographic location, sexual orientation, gender and type of disability.
Transparency, Integrity and Excellence
The Arc conducts its business with integrity, accountability, and open, honest and timely
communication. The Arc is committed to quality and excellence in all it does.
