The Arc Otsego has come along 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 developmental disabilities and building a community where all are truly welcomed and appreciated. One person, one member, standing side by side with each person The Arc Otsego supports means 500 voices raised in support of that individual in Otsego County alone! Join the circle and become a member today!
Your Membership Helps to Draw the Circle Wide Through:
Comprehensive local services, education and advocacy
Statewide advocacy through NYSARC, Inc., our parent organization
Real choices and opportunities for all persons with developmental disabilities and their families
