Target demographics: People with developmental disabilities and their families living in Union County, NC.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Spend time with one of our self-advocates through our Community Connections program!
Community Connections is a program that matches a volunteer from our community with an adult with a developmental disability. Together they will spend time together each month, exploring recreational resources in our area and taking part in leisure activities. This is a time to share opportunities to learn new skills, grow as individuals and to get to know each other. It's a great way for people with developmental disabilities to become more socially involved in the community!

Mission:
The Arc is a resource and a voice for people with developmental disabilities and their families, and strives to protect, empower and promote meaningful participation and inclusion in their schools and communities.
