The Arc of New Jersey 75th Anniversary

The Arc of New Jersey is thrilled to be celebrating 75 years of advocacy, service and support to children and adults with IDD and their families. Started by families of individuals with IDD in 1949, The Arc remains today an organization driven by the values and vision of people with IDD and their families. We invite you to join us in celebrating this amazing milestone.
