This site is under construction. It is presently available only to participants of The Inclusion Academy. As we learn through this pilot project with The Inclusion Academy, it is our goal to expand the site more fully to The Arc of King County community. You can expect news of this through our communications and social media channels. We look forward to having you here!
A space for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, family members, and community allies to connect and learn together in support of a world that is inclusive and systemically equitable for all people.
With such a diverse community of folks connected to The Arc, we seek to nurture relationships, discovery, and collaboration among the many who engage with us. This site provides one way for folks to find one another and to connect over topics of shared interest.
We hope that in joining, you will find a place to exchange stories, learn, celebrate, consult collective wisdom, and recruit support for advocacy efforts large and small.
As The Arc of King County delivers classes and webinars throughout the year, we plan to share our presentation materials here. We hope this will serve as one easy, central place to find our educational offerings.
We encourage you to continue adding to this content for discussion, raising questions and invitations to collaborate, and sharing resources.
Along the way, you will find features to help you navigate, sort and search information, and meet folks to connect with. There will be opportunities to select how you identify within the community and to create a brief bio for yourself. As you share and engage, you will have options to specify topics of interest, follow fellow members, and join groups. These will evolve and grow with our community.
The Arc of King County serves all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the lifespan: from prenatal diagnosis through end of life care. Our programs include: Information and Family Support for parents, guardians, and siblings; Supported Living Services for adults living in the community; Representative Payee for individuals needing financial management assistance; Homelessness Prevention for families at-risk of losing their housing; and Advocacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, family members, and community allies seeking to make our community more systemically equitable for all people. We promote and protect the human and civil rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, actively supporting their full inclusion so that they can live, learn, work, and play in the community – making the world a better place for us all.
