Achieve with Us
Our Mission

Achieve with us.®

The mission of The Arc-Solano is to promote the greatest personal growth, community understanding, and full participation of people with developmental disabilities and their families through support, education, and advocacy.

For more than 70 years, we have been on the front lines empowering Solano County residents to promote and protect their rights and interests, while enriching the quality of their lives. Currently, we provide three Core Programs that support adults with intellectual & developmental disabilities. Our two Day Programs provide our consumers with the necessary tools and life skills for community inclusion through classes, coaching, and guided community participation. By assisting with executive skills such as problem-solving, budgeting, and health management, our Independent Living Skills program supports those who wish to or who already live independently to remain that way. We also have Value-Added programs to enrich our consumers' lives, such as literacy and art.

The Arc-Solano is proud to be an affiliate of The Arc of California and The Arc US.  Members of The Arc-Solano are part of a state and nationwide network totaling 23 local California chapters and over 600 chapters across the country. The Arc is the largest national community-based organization advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. It encompasses all ages and more than 100 different diagnoses including autism, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, and various other developmental disabilities.

We love this annual fundraiser and October 13, 2024, will be our 6th Sprout Film Festival! This event focuses exclusively on films celebrating the diverse lives and creativity of people with developmental disabilities. This is our primary fundraiser for the year and we would love your support! Your generous sponsorships help keep consistent, stable, and quality staffing in our programs and enable us to provide significant enrichments to our program participants.

70 Years in Solano County

The Arc-Solano was founded in 1953 by a group of parents who wanted a better life for their children. Since then, The Arc-Solano has evolved, expanded, moved, changed names, and become the person-centered organization that it is today. In June 2023, we celebrated our 70th anniversary with a wonderful birthday party and invited all of our friends.

We were recognized for 70 years of service by Assemblymember Lori Wilson and Senator Bill Dodd. We put together a beautiful, lighted photograph display that documented our organizational history from 1953 to 2013 plus a gorgeous slideshow of our more recent history. We also danced the night away to the Bay Area's own Dream Achievers- a fantastic band whose members are all on the Autism spectrum. 

It was a wonderful night to remember and we look forward to celebrating our next big birthday!
