Welcome to the The Arc of Benton County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides advocacy and services, as needed, for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Help us meet our goal by July!
The benefits of tactile therapy are undeniable. Everyday we use our senses to navigate the world and develop. Join us in creating our very own Community Sensory Garden at the new Philomath thrift store, where visitors are invited to explore. Donate today!
The Arc Activities Calendar
The Arc Classes & Activities are for teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Every participant must have a current profile with The Arc, which is updated yearly. Profile forms are available here. Unless otherwise stated, The Arc charges $5/hr for staffing, plus any additional expenses (movie tickets, food, bowling, etc.) Members pay $4/hr. Apply here.
"The secret to happiness is having something to do with your day... something positive."
