One Step at a Time

Advocacy & Outreach

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Our history, as with Arc of the United States,  Arc of Connecticut, and all the other Arc Chapters nationwide--our organization started as grassroots advocacy by family members for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

 Advocacy for disability rights is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.

ARCGNH engages in the following outreach and advocacy work:

  • Hosting legislative events for the community/parents supporting individuals with disabilities

  • ARCGNH's self-advocacy group "The Rising Stars" meets monthly.

  • Organizing call-in events and other action agendas to protect and enhance services to individuals with I/DD.

  • Participating in trade group, community fund, chamber of commerce, and legislative forums.

  • Assisting  families to navigate the I/DD service setting to determine if our services are a match for their loved one.
