Our local Arc is first and foremost an advocacy organization. Employees and volunteers
represent our constituency at intellectual and
developmental service meetings throughout
the year. We also advocate 1 on 1 for
individuals and their families upon request.
The Arc offers an evening drop-in program called AMPES which meets weekly in Milton, Sunbury, Shamokin, Bloomsburg, Selinsgrove and Berwick.
The Arc also offers an evening drop-in program called STEP for school age students. Please call our office at 570-286-1008 for further details on this program.
We also provide many other social and community activities throughout the year through our Social Recreational Program including bowling, Secret Pal Club and bus trips.
A volunteer Board of Directors governs The Arc. Funding comes from memberships, government contracts, United Way funds, fundraising events, and gifts from foundations.
