The Arc of Northern Rhode Island (The Homestead Group) is a not-for-profit human service agency providing supports and services for people with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities. The Arc has a long and rich history, formed more than fifty years ago by volunteer-parents seeking support and services for their children with disabilities. Today, The Arc operates a Habilitative Services Division, a Residential Services Division, and an Independent Living Services Program. Altogether The Arc provides services to over 350 individuals. The mission of The Homestead Group is to help the people we support lead the lives they want and deserve. The Arc of Northern Rhode Island's roots began in 1954, when a meeting of parents of children with mental retardation was held in response to an ad placed in the Woonsocket Call by Mr. and Mrs. Nate Miller. The primary focus in the fifties by these parents was to provide, day care, education and recreation for their children.
