The Arc of Aurora assists children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families to live the highest quality lives possible through information and referral; community training and education; individual, class and systems change advocacy; and, individual, family, volunteer and community support.

To The Arc of Aurora, advocacy is acting with or on behalf of an individual or class in the least intrusive manner to resolve an issue or to obtain needed supports or services.  The Arc of Aurora Advocates are never the sole decision maker in any situation; instead, we work collaboratively with the people we serve, community members, organizations, and schools to help ensure our clients’ independence, choice, respect, dignity and protection of rights.

We serve people who live in City of Aurora (Arapahoe, Adams and Douglas counties) including Colorado Judicial Districts 17 and 18; Aurora Public and Cherry Creek School Districts.  We also provide community, Colorado statewide, and national outreach to address victimization of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
