The mission of The Arc of Ohio is to advocate for human rights, personal dignity and community participation of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, through legislative and social action, information and education, local chapter support and family involvement.
Our values are based on the concept that all people, regardless of ability, have the right to be productive, interdependent members of their respective communities and the society at large. We recognize the fundamental role of families in making choices and decisions for their minor children. We also hold that people, who are adults, have the right to make their own choices concerning where and with whom they will live, and how they will spend their time, regardless of ability.
Offer advice, resources, and training sessions. Support families in advocacy meetings. Advocate for the rights of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities from birth to the end of life.
Coordinate the self-directed program as the agency provider by hiring and training DSPs and provide oversight and responsibility for certification, compliance, waiver billing, workers’ compensation and payroll.
Utilize waiver dollars to aid in acquiring technology devices to help with needs such as communication devices.
