The Arc of the Capital Area

The Arc of the Capital Area is one of the oldest continuously–operating non-profits in Austin. Since 1949 we empowered adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We serve over 1,000 individuals each year across 17 counties. Intellectual and developmental disabilities or I/DD is an umbrella term that includes more than 100 different diagnoses, including Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and Autism.
