The Arc of Shelby County, chartered in the 1970’s as a support group for parents of children with developmental disabilities, has grown into an advocacy agency that now serves over 1,000 children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families each year with programs and services. We have watched our capacity to provide life-changing programs and services to individuals blossom into a potential to provide tools for improving an already strong and growing community. As we move forward into the growth that our future promises, we invite you to join us.

The Arc of Shelby County is an affiliate of The Arc of The United States and The Arc of Alabama and is a partner of The United Way of Central Alabama.  The Arc of Shelby County is also a CARF accredited agency.
