The Arc of Randolph County was founded in the mid 1970’s by a group of parents seeking services and support for children with disabilities. One of their first achievements was raising enough funds thru the first ever Bike Hike. The local community raised enough funds to match State funds to open the Randolph County Learning Center.
Once free and appropriate education became a mandate for children with disabilities, the Arc’s focus was to serve adults in the Randolph County Service area, which includes Roanoke, Wadley, Wedowee and Woodland.
The Arc is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
