The Arc is the nation’s leading advocate for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families—Achieve with us.®
For more than 60 years, The Arc-Solano has been on the front lines in providing resources and empowering Solano County residents to promote and protect their rights and interests, while enriching the quality of their lives.
Mentoring a child helps them to see unlimited possibilities for the future, learn something new and most importantly, realize that somebody cares about them.
While it might seem simple to say talents can help others, actually identifying your talents and putting them to good use can be a little bit more difficult.
If you strive to live an altruistic lifestyle, there are plenty of gifts you can give your loved one on Mother’s Day that also give back to others in the community.
Our events are designed to unite advocates, families, members and professionals to share ideas, inspiration, and resources. Visit our calendar to view Arc-Solano hosted events for both the public and our consumers, as well as other community events that we attend, volunteer at, or would like to share with you.
The Arc-Solano is an organization that has been serving people with developmental disabilities and their families since April of 1953. The organization was granted legal status by the State of California on July 14, 1954 and was called the Solano Council for Retarded Children (SCRC). The SCRC was formed as a parent support group. The first president was Harry Rhodes. From 1953 to 1969, the organization served all of Solano County.
Help ensure individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the resources and support to meet their needs and live self-determined lives.
We strive to enrich the lives of our consumers by engaging them in special activities and events either at our facility or out in the community. These experiences provide variety, education, socialization, confidence, and lots of fun.
