Ways to Give

Welcome to the Arc of Monroe

The Arc supports more than 1,700 people with developmental or intellectual disabilities as they strive to reach their full potential.  Each person has unique abilities and gifts that enrich their lives and our community immeasurably.

The range of our services is impressive…comprehensive employment services, diverse clinical and health services, an innovative campus-based college program, residential services and more.  But the common thread is our focus on each person and our belief that they should have every opportunity to become a full part of their community.

Dedicated staff and an inspiring mission have made the Arc of Monroe a community treasure for nearly 60 years.  We invite you to learn more.

In Monroe County, the employment rate for people with disabilities is 31.9 percent compared to 75.9 percent for people without disabilities.

Even though, there have been improvements across Monroe County in the growth of employment opportunities, there remains a gap for people with disabilities consistently being employed.
We need more businesses to partner with the Arc of Monroe and Job Path, both large and small, to provide meaningful, competitive employment. Is that you, or do you know a business that might be interested? #NDEAM

Huge thanks to @News8WROC for attending our first-ever Cooking Matters program with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and Foodlink. This class taught healthy eating and food preparation safety. As a result the people we support are able to lead healthy lives, be active and eat right.

Did you know our Job Path program supports over 400 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across Monroe County? Scott Russo, Job Development Manager at Job Path, is a guest essayist in today's Democrat and Chronicle.
