The Arc of Aurora changes lives. With knowledge, passion, commitment and integrity, we work with and on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to improve the quality of their lives. We are not residential or day program service providers and we do not run segregated schools -- we do not offer, for instance, housing, transportation or job coaching. Government-funded organizations are charged with those duties. We are advocates. We are the folks people call when they feel like every door is closed and there are no more options. We help the organizations and people who ARE supposed to provide housing, transportation and job coaching understand what they need to know to adequately support their clients with I/DD. What's new -- The Arc of Aurora making a difference everyday!

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.

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.
