The Arc of Greater Tarrant County is a 501(c)3, non profit organization that has worked to improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc of Greater Tarrant County was founded in 1949 by a group of parents who wished to discuss educational needs for their children.

Our services include advocacy, information and referral, parent and professional education, public education and fun activities and classes.


Case management/advocacy for adults age 18 or over and their families to help the adult transition from one phase of life to another—from school to work, or from home to independent living, and to provide information about community resources, living options, financial planning and guardianship.

The Arc enhances the social bonds among members of the developmental disability community through networking, linking parents to parents, self-advocates to self-advocates, motivating them to work together to help each other, to share information with each other; and links individuals and families to state and national leadership training to learn to speak out for people with disabilities.
WEEKLY ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES–Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays

The agency provides social and recreation activities through monthly family fun nights and monthly dances; outings and annual holiday celebrations. Partnerships with local services and agencies (Guardianship Inc, city Parks and Rec Dept., etc.) are developed so that advocates can participate in ongoing community activities.
