The Arc

of Manistee County


The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

Striving to improve the quality of life for the developmentally disabled, The Arc is an advocacy group comprised of parents and citizens.  The organization sponsors advocacy programs, family support group, student assistance fund, social events and a summer enrichment program.


The Arc tries to improve the quality of life of those with special needs by providing them with social activities that otherwise would not be available to them, such as spring prom, bingo, movie night or family picnics.  They foster understanding  and acceptance within our community of people with Special Needs.
