The Arc of Schuyler

Public Headquartered in Watkins Glen, NY

The Arc of Schuyler is a private, not-for-profit organization founded by parents and friends of people with disabilities in our community, located in Watkins Glen, NY with other sites throughout Schuyler County.

The Arc of Schuyler was chartered in 1978 by NYSARC, Inc., a statewide family based organization working with and for people with developmental disabilities in New York.

Career Opportunities

The Arc of Schuyler is a member of The Arc of the United States, a national organization on developmental disabilities. The Arc is committed to securing for all people with disabilities the opportunity to chose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work and play.

Vision

It is our vision to be the best at supporting people with disabilities and their families in their everyday quest for the freedom to make choice about their lives and the services they receive.

The future we envision is one where all people with disabilities are fully included as members of a community that embraces the diversity of all people, and values individuals for who they are in a safe and caring environment.

Culture

The Arc is governed by a volunteer board of directors, a majority of whom are parents or blood relatives of someone with a disability. The remaining board members are community leaders whose insight and experience provide assistance and direction to ensure The Arc is integrated into the community as a whole. From its modest beginnings of providing vocational programs for a small group of adults, the organization has grown to serving hundreds of individuals with disabilities and their families through various day, residential, and support service programs.
