Our Mission

GWArc's mission is to serve children, adolescents and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in the community, utilizing a person-centered planning approach. We provide quality, flexible programs, services and supports which maximize independence, foster inclusion, promote self-advocacy and build community connections. GWArc programs are based upon self-determination, sound teaching practices and the latest technology. GWArc is committed to advocacy and legislation to influence attitudes and perceptions so individuals may choose and achieve life goals.

A private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, GWArc is uniquely sensitive to the level of personal support required for individuals to thrive. We have proven experience with the inclusion of all people into the community.
