Join Us at the 70th Anniversary Gala!

Please join The Arc of Massachusetts in celebrating 70 years of progress for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and autism: from institutions and segregation to inclusion and opportunities. Innumerable advocates, families, public officials, donors, human service agencies, and friends have worked tirelessly to reach this milestone.

Through their efforts, the 200,000 Massachusetts residents living with disabilities have more opportunities to lead full lives in the community than ever before. Come celebrate the progress we have made together!
