About Us

The Arc of Indiana County was established in 1973 as a local chapter of The Arc of the United States and as a non-profit agency to provide information, education and support for people with disabilities and their families.  Our chapter is affiliated with both The Arc of Pennsylvania and The Arc of the United States.
