To encourage and celebrate the potential of people who experience disabilities.

For over six decades, The Arc of Anchorage has been a family-focused, grassroots organization.

The Arc of Anchorage has a full array of disability services from birth throughout life for Alaskans who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities, behavioral and mental health challenges. We provide choices in disability services that best meet the unique needs of those we serve. We recognize each person has dream and goals, ambitions and interests, as well as aptitudes and abilities apart from the disability they experience.

Our Core Values

Respect – We honor everyone’s heritage, history, experiences and specific personal interests.

Integrity – We do the right thing.

Joy – We seize opportunities to create adventure and fulfillment in all aspects of life.

Our Vision

To be a community that recognizes and embraces people of all abilities.
