Chapters

The Arc is a nationwide organization with each state running both a statewide chapter and several local chapters within the state. The 18 local Chapters of The Arc in Massachusetts work throughout the Commonwealth to provide services and supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities – such as Down syndrome, Autism, and cerebral palsy – and their families on a case-by-case basis.
