And so, our mission is simple – to create opportunities for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to realize their dreams.

The Arc Otsego has come a long way since 1965 when a group of parents, dreaming of a better life for their children, formed the Otsego County Chapter of the New York State Arc. Today, your membership is a vital part of achieving the dream of enhancing life for all persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and building a community where all are truly welcome and appreciated.
