The mission of The Arc of Tempe is to empower and enrich the lives of persons with developmental disabilities by teaching self-advocacy, life-skills and civic involvement through hands-on learning and recreational activities. The Arc of Tempe is dedicated to change at the community level. Our vision is a diverse and thriving community in which all individuals are valued and participating citizens.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit From 2009 to 2010, participation in The Arc of Tempe program rose 10% as individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families sought low cost alternatives to state services lost in 2009-2010 budget cuts. The Arc of Tempe provides just such an alternative, offering a safe, fun place for individuals with intellectual disabilities to make new friends, learn practical life skills, and experience community activities. For parents or guardians, the program provides valuable respite time. The Arc of Tempe will continue to accept new program participants and grow the program to meet increased need. One area in which we will concentrate in 2011 is that of transitioning high school students aged 16-22. Plans are underway and funding is being sought for a series of special activities addressing issues of this specific age group and introducing transitioning students to the program..
