The Arc of Schuyler is a family-based organization providing supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism.
The Arc of Schuyler is a chapter of NYSARC, Inc., which is the largest not for profit organization working with and for people with developmental disabilities in New York. Through NYSARC, The Arc of Schuyler is an affiliated chapter of The Arc of the United States.
The Arc of Schuyler promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
We envision a future in which all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are fully included as members of a community that embraces the diversity of all people, and values people for who they are in a safe and caring environment.
These courageous parents learned from neighboring communities how to form an organization that would meet the needs of their family members with disabilities, and in 1978, The Arc of Schuyler was chartered in Watkins Glen, New York by NYSARC, Inc.
From modest beginnings of providing vocational programs for a small group of adults, The Arc of Schuyler has become the most comprehensive provider of supports to hundreds of people with disabilities and their families.
The Arc continues to be governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, most of whom are parents or relatives of a person with a developmental disability. The remaining board members are community leaders whose insight and experience provide assistance and direction to ensure The Arc is integrated into our community.
The Arc of Schuyler’s Forms 990, 990-T, and 1023 are available for public inspection. A copy of our annual financial report may be obtained upon request from The Arc of Schuyler, 203 12th Street, Watkins Glen, NY 14891.
