The Arc of Gaston County
The Gaston County chapter of ARC was founded in 1961, and currently serves our developmentally delayed population and their families as a resource guide to available services in our area.
The Arc of Gaston County is committed to securing various life skill opportunities for all people with Mental Challenges and related Development Disabilities in order for them to choose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work, and play throughout Gaston County. The Arc is further committed to reducing the incidence and limiting the consequences of Mental Challenges through the support of friends, families, and the community. Through the successful pursuit of quality and justice, the Arc will provide leadership in the field of mental retardation and develop necessary human financial resources to attain it’s goals. We are here to make a difference!
