Ohioans with developmental disabilities cannot get the care and support they desperately need because of the unprecedented workforce shortage of Direct Support Professionals caused by extremely low wages.
The Arc of Ohio is the voice of people with developmental disabilities, their families, friends of people with disabilities, and those who work with them.
The Arc of Ohio is a grassroots organization which advocates for human rights, personal dignity and community participation of individuals with developmental disabilities through legislative and social action, information and education, local chapter supports, and family involvement.
The Arc of Ohio links over 20,000 Ohioans to current public policy issues through The Arc of Ohio’s weekly newsletter and through social media. These avenues provide individuals and families with a statewide network of support.
