People First

The Arc of Greater Williamsburg believes that all people with developmental disabilities have strengths, abilities and inherent value; are equal before the law, and must be treated with dignity and respect. The Arc represents, supports and acts on behalf of individuals and their families regardless of the level of disability or membership in The Arc. The Arc believes in self-determination by empowering people with the supports needed to make informed decisions and choices.

A democratic process involving members, through affiliated chapters, is utilized to take positions on important issues, policies, and programs.

The Arc leads by promoting the mission, core values, and position statements. We lead with integrity, accountability, and by open, honest, and timely communication. We work with individuals, organizations, and coalitions in a collaborative fashion. There is a valued partnership with volunteer and staff leadership at all levels of the organization that provides mutual support for their respective roles.


The Arc works toward and believes in the community imperative: that all people have the fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to live, learn, work, play and worship in safe and healthy communities of their choosing. The Arc has responsibility to ensure the safety and well being of individuals.


The Arc is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of its services on the basis of race, color, or national origin, as protected by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
