To a Caring Community
The Arc of Gaston County is committed to securing various life skill opportunities for all people with Mental Challenges and related Development Disabilities in order for them to choose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work, and play throughout Gaston County. The Arc is further committed to reducing the incidence and limiting the consequences of Mental Challenges through the support of friends, families, and the community. Through the successful pursuit of quality and justice, the Arc will provide leadership in the field of mental retardation and develop necessary human financial resources to attain it’s goals. We are here to make a difference!
To a World of Opportunity
Today’s special needs children and adults have unlimited opportunities to realize their individual potential, and truly grow, thrive and contribute to our community and the world. “You don’t know what anyone is capable of until you give them the opportunity”- this well-known saying applies to 100% of the population we serve. It is important to recognize that they have many skills and talents, and that their capabilities outweigh any of their limitations. If you look closely, they actually have more in common with their peers than differences. Remember, people with disabilities are PEOPLE FIRST. Empower them to succeed!
