Your Membership Matters 

Make a Difference Today. Become a Member of The Arc Mid-Hudson. The Arc Mid-Hudson is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1956 by families in Greene, Putnam and Ulster Counties who believed that their children with disabilities should have the same opportunities as their peers.

 

The 1,300 people supported by The Arc Mid-Hudson are energetic students, committed community volunteers, talented artists, dedicated employees at local businesses and strong self-advocates.

 

The Arc  Mid-Hudson is made up of children and adults, family members and friends.

 

Our goals are all the same… LIVE LIFE TO IT’S FULLEST POTENTIAL!

 

Your Membership means power in numbers. The more members we have, the louder our voice is in advocacy efforts, and the stronger we are in our ability to make things happen.
