- Options and opportunities that meet individual needs of all those we serve so that they may discover, set and work toward goals that will enable them to maximize their full participation in all aspects of life.
- Opportunities to involve families so they may be a part of RCLC’s efforts to enhance the quality of life for the people we serve.
- Education that promotes awareness and acceptance that will increase inclusion in the community for persons with disabilities.
The Arc of Randolph County promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community.
The Arc of Randolph County supports people with intellectual disabilities with dignity and respect and promotes and protects the human rights of individuals served.
People we support will live the lives they choose as valued and respectful members of their community.
Our vision embraces individual differences, emphasizes personal achievements and ensures opportunities for all in an environment that is fully accessible, healthy, safe and free from mistreatment.
Our Core Values
People First. The Arc believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability.
Equity. The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society, and are equal before the law.
Community. The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.
Self-determination. The Arc believes in self-determination and self-advocacy. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.
Diversity. The Arc believes that society in general and The Arc in particular benefit from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, age, geographic location, sexual orientation, gender and type of disability).
