The Arc of Midland is a nonprofit organization which promotes the general welfare of people with developmental disabilities and increases their presence, participation and inclusion in the community.
Statement of Values
The Arc will help to build a community that values and includes all citizens.
We respect all individuals, including people with diverse cultures, history and beliefs.
We advocate for all citizens to be welcomes and included in community life.
Inclusion is the way to foster relationships that will allow all citizens to be safe, respected community members.
We trust families, people who work in systems and the community to do what they say they will do.
We encourage creativity and diverse thinking.
Our programs and activities are strongly supportive of the goals of the United Way of Midland County
The United Way of Midland County focuses its resources on four key areas of impact in our community-strengthening families, increasing self-sufficiency, nurturing children and youth and
promoting health. Offered in each of these categories are results-oriented "safety net" programs
focused on meeting basic human needs. Working with 25 agency partners, we support local programs
that provide measurable and visible results for those most vulnerable in our community,
as you'll see demonstrated on the pages of this report.
Through the work of local agencies, families are given the opportunity
to establish and improve healthy relationships through tailored
programs and activities offered in our community.
Those in our community with disabilities or who find themselves in
difficult or threatening situations are offered programs and services
to help get them back on their feet.
Nurturing Children & Youth
Local agencies offer creative ways to provide healthy recreational
and educational activities for today?s youth, while exposing them to
positive and influential role models.
Programs and services offered through our local agencies that promote
healthy and safe living as well as support those coping with illness or addiction
