Knows It's Fun to do Good!

It's Fun To Do Good and The ARC of Chandler/Gilbert knows it!

Chandler-Gilbert Arc is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing teaching and support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Phoenix, AZ East Valley Region.

First conceived in 1975 as “Chandler Arc”, by a group of parents who wanted to provide life options for their adult children with disabilities, Chandler-Gilbert Arc now proudly serves over 500 individuals per year of all ages with specialized community-based employment, housing, and adult day support services.

Our mission is to facilitate growth for people with disabilities through choice, experience, guidance, and respect.

We are licensed and funded primarily by the State of Arizona Department of Economic Security Division of Developmental Disabilities (DES/DDD), Department of Child Safety with partial funding support by the State of Arizona Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) as well as other local private funding sources.  At the State & National level, we proudly partner with The Arc of Arizona and Arc of the United States.
