THE ARC OF ADAMS COUNTY

Since 1962 it has been the mission of The Arc of Adams County to protect, preserve, and promote the human and civil rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

Our 2023 5k Run/Walk has been postponed until 2024.

Our walk-in hours are limited. We recommend that you schedule an appointment with your advocate or call (303) 428-0310. Thank you!

We recommend that all visitors to the office be vaccinated. Masking is optional. Please call or email our office to schedule an appointment.   We continue to offer appointments in person or virtually to meet the needs of our members and guests.
