About The Arc & its Foundation

The Arc of Indiana County was founded in 1973. John’s parents, Joe and Shirley Angelo were among the founding members. The Arc is a strong advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc assists families by:

1. Providing information and resources about special education, transition to work, community services and much more.

2. Assisting in getting answers to questions and concerns regarding the rights of all people with disabilities.

3. Helping parents to prepare for meetings with teachers and school administrators and with community service coordinators or providers.

4. Keeping persons with intellectual challenges informed as to their rights as citizens of Pennsylvania and of the United States of America and advocating for rights they have been denied.

The Foundation for The Arc was founded in 2004 as a repository of funds to ensure the financial stability of The Arc.
