Our Mission

The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville is a family based organization that promotes, protects and advocates for the right of people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to live self-determined, meaningful lives in inclusive communities.

The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville envisions communities in which people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are accorded the respect, dignity, equality, safety and security to which all members of society are entitled, have the opportunity to actively participate in all aspects of society, and have access to the supports and resources they need in order to make and act on decisions about their own lives.
