The Point/Arc was founded in 1972 by a group of parents fighting for the educational rights of their children, who were diagnosed with an intellectual and developmental (I/DD) disability.

The organization’s mission is to help people with disabilities achieve their highest potential educationally, socially, residentially and vocationally. The Point/Arc has worked to identify gaps in services and provide care and support to fill those gaps – even when government funding sources are not available.
