It is our guiding belief that every individual with an intellectual or developmental disability has an intrinsic yet often unrealized value in his or her community. In representing this population that has been historically underserved, Placer ARC is passionately dedicated to the support, education, and well-being of these individuals. Each of our five programs promotes various measures of support and growth in the areas of personal care, healthy lifestyles, finances, the visual and performing arts, volunteerism, vocational guidance, and higher education.
Our values are grounded in the belief that each individual has something to contribute and that contribution, whether great or small, is truly important. We have learned that oftentimes before an individual can recognize their own potential, they must first be accepted, guided, supported, and given choices to do well. Accordingly, our value statement reads as follows:
Placer ARC invests in the lives of individuals with special needs because every life has value.
