The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence is a proud Chapter of The Arc New York, the statewide organization that supports and connects over 25 local Chapters in realizing our statewide mission to provide people with disabilities the ordinary and extraordinary opportunities of life. As a member of The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence, you are also a member of The Arc New York – one of 100,000 members statewide. Each of those 100,000 voices is essential in advocating for sustainable, quality services and supports for New Yorkers with disabilities, and collectively, our voices raise a powerful call.

Together we serve one third of all New Yorkers with I/DD. Our Chapters regularly collaborate to navigate challenges, share expertise and best practices, and bring forward ideas for progress. The Arc New York sustains that network, advocates with the state, and provides guidance and resources to strengthen our Chapter and others.

We would like to invite you to become a member today! If you are a current member, we are asking you to not only renew your membership, but also to encourage at least one family member or friend to become a member. Perhaps you would like to buy a membership for someone as a gift? Giving a gift membership is a wonderful way to send a meaningful message.

Would you consider becoming a Lifetime Member?

This one-time membership fee costs $100 and you will become a member for life, rather than having to renew every year. The commitment from Lifetime members provides us with additional financial support for many essential services including; supported living, learning, employment, social, recreational, health, artistic and respite for families.
