Mission Statement: The Arc of Chattooga County promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation into the community throughout their lifetimes

What began as a grassroots effort of family and friends of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Arc of Chattooga County opened its doors as a training center in order to not have to bus their loved ones to Rome, GA or Chattanooga TN for day services in 1973 and is still working to provide for the various needs of those in our community with special needs. A non profit organization run by volunteers who love and care about those in our community who have I/DD.
