  • The Arc of Harris County

    Serving children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and Autism.
    11/28/2023 - 12/31/2024

    The Arc of Harris County was established in 1984 led by the efforts of parents and community leaders interested in improving the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities largely in response to the words: “nothing can be done for your child.” The Arc of Harris County's focus was to connect parents and family members with the resources needed to feel confident and capable of caring for and helping their child thrive. Parents and family members turned to The Arc from infancy to adulthood, especially during school years.
    Programs and Services:
