The Arc of Denton County has impacted the Denton county Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities(IDD) community since its charter in 1967. We do this directly through our Self Advocate monthly meetings and book club regularly attended by 22-30 members, social events regularly attended by 25-100+, and the Texas Advocate annual conference attended by 30 of our advocate members. We also answer questions, provide resources, and a sounding board for callers to our help line, and responses to inquiries to our email account.
We impact the Denton Community with volunteer opportunities for local colleges and Arc members as well as participation in talks through our Speaker's Bureau and representation at local resource fairs which offer information and services to the IDD community.
We develop community awareness of the needs and potential of the IDD community through our partnerships with Texas Arc, US Arc, Denton County MHMR, Texas Advocates, UNT, TWU, NCTC, Mid-Cities Arc, Lewisville ISD, Denton ISD, Lake Dallas ISD, and Sanger ISD. We also share resources with other like-minded nonprofits such as Special Abilities of North Texas and Community For Permanent Supported Housing.
