To create possibilities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to grow, learn, and live.
Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities will be able to become an integral and valuable member of the community.
Inclusion: The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil, and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society, as an equal.
Advocacy: The Arc believes in self-advocacy and self-determination. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be defined by their own strengths, abilities, and inherent value, not by their disability.
Education: The Arc believes that the community should be educated and be aware of the abilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc believes that through knowledge and understanding comes acceptance and value.
The Arc of Greater Beaumont’s programs and services serve the organization’s mission while staying true to it’s values and vision for the community.
