The Arc of King County
Sylvia Fuerstenberg, Executive Director
Founded in 1936, The Arc of King County is the oldest non-profit organization serving children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families in the Greater Puget Sound area, and is one of the oldest such organizations in the United States. It is an affiliated chapter of The Arc of Washington and The Arc of the United States. We work with children and adults with all forms of developmental disabilities and their families. Developmental disabilities are conditions that occur prior to the age of 18 and are expected to last for life, and include Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and intellectual disabilities.The Arc of King County provides direct, hands-on support to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. We assist people through:
Outreach – By working to increase the knowledge and competence of the community at large in serving and interacting with people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Advocacy – By ensuring that individuals with developmental disabilities and the people who support them receive the information they need to access and influence community resources and services.
Direct Support – By facilitating the choices, inclusion and skills of people with developmental disabilities to live in our communities.
