The Arc South of the James
Our vision is for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities to be fully participating members of the community, living “A Life Like Yours.”
getting an education that doesn't segregate you from your peers
having full access to the places, activities and events that interest you
finding a job that uses your skills and talents
living in a home of your own choosing
People of all abilities deserve to be a part of the community -- not apart from the community.
As a local chapter of The Arc of Virginia, we serve the Tri-Cities area. This includes Petersburg, Hopewell and Colonial Heights, as well as surrounding counties like Dinwiddie, Prince George and Chesterfield.
