Making A Difference

The Arc Washington County’s mission is to enable persons of all ages with disabilities to live as contributing, valued members of the community by creating partnerships that foster nurturing communities where people with disabilities can live their vision of a valued life.

We are a non-profit service organization, chartered in 1961 and affiliated with the Arc Tennessee as well as the Arc U.S.  Our agency is dedicated to promoting the growth of nurturing communities where all people have the opportunity to join in fellowship and valued contribution to family, friends, neighborhood, work, spiritual, and community life.

With the awareness that people should be the driving force behind their own services and determining what is needed and what is important,  Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services (DIDD) is moving toward adoption of Principles of Person Centered Practices.  The Arc Washington County supports over 800 people making choices regarding what services they need and want.  The Arc has adopted these principles and is working to implement these practices and methods of service planning and delivery.  Please click here to view details of Person Centered Practices.
