The Advocacy and Resource Center is a Chapter of NYSARC, Inc., which is New York State's premier advocacy organization for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. When you become a member of our Chapter, you also become a member of NYSARC.


NYSARC, Inc., and our Chapter, is associated with The Arc, which is a national organization that was founded over 55 years ago by families united by a shared vision to improve the lives of their disabled loved ones. Today, The Arc is the world's largest community based organization, with over 140,000 members affiliated with more than 850 state and local chapters across the nation.


Membership to our Chapter allows you to network with other parents/caregivers and to become involved with the Chapter to the extent that you desire. You become an advocate for disabled individuals, as well as give our Chapter a greater voice in our own advocacy efforts with the local, State and Federal governments.


To be a member, you must be 18 years of age or older or must be a blood relative of an individual served by our agency or a resident of Clinton County. Chapter membership is renewed annually at several different levels, with minimal dues. Please consider becoming a member of our Chapter and allowing us to continue with our mission.
