We are New York State's premier advocacy organization for
individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Advocacy and Resource Center's mission is to provide various program options or services to persons with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities and their families. The agency has pursued its mission by providing programs to over 600 individuals with developmental disabilities each day. In providing these comprehensive programs to the disabled, the agency employs over 500 individuals, thus having a significant impact on the economy of the area.
The Advocacy and Resource Center will be recognized within the community as an outstanding service agency. Development of all individualized services will be based upon identified personal outcome measures and quality leadership standards.
The future we envision is one where all individuals supported are active within their community and accepted in all aspects of life. Each person’s quality of life will be enriched through personally meaningful activities, formation of sincere relationships and the pursuit and realization of dreams and goals. Individuals will be recognized for their abilities and contributions as a friend, companion, patron and member of the community.
We will be recognized by the community as a leading employer in the region. This will be accomplished by ensuring a well-trained and dedicated workforce, effective management practices and fiscal viability.

The ARC Foundation is a not-for-profit public corporation, founded in 1999. The foundation was created in order to receive and administer funds for the primary benefit of the developmentally disabled of Clinton County New York.
The foundation is a separate entity from the Advocacy and Resource Center (Clinton County Chapter of NYSARC, Inc.). However, because the missions of the ARC Foundation and the Advocacy and Resource Center serve the same purpose, the Advocacy and Resource Center may directly benefit from contributions made by the Foundation.
