A Leader in Disability Support
The Arc believes the principle that individuals with intellectual disabilities should have the same rights as all other individuals. They should be able to live, work, and participate in environments that would promote as much independence as possible in the least restrictive, appropriate setting. The staff of The Arc recognizes that each individual has the capacity for growth, and that each individual should have access to quality services to enhance his/her development, productivity, and capacity for social interaction with others.
Deeply Rooted In History
The Arc of Madison County was founded in the late 1950s by a group of parents seeking services and support for children with disabilities. One of their first achievements was raising enough funds to place the first special education teacher in the Huntsville City School System. Once free and appropriate education became a mandate for children with disabilities, The Arc’s focus was able to broaden; becoming an advocate for all those with disabilities – from infants to adults.
Over the years, The Arc has been recognized for our many services and programs.
Some of these services include:
Pediatric Outpatient Center

Achieving Cultural and Financial ROI
