Our local Arc is first and foremost an advocacy organization. Employees and volunteers
represent our constituency at intellectual and
developmental service meetings throughout
the year. We also advocate 1 on 1 for
individuals and their families upon request.
  • The Arc offers an evening drop-in program called AMPES which meets weekly in Milton, Sunbury, Shamokin, Bloomsburg, Selinsgrove and Berwick.
  • We also provide many other social and community activities throughout the year through our Social Recreational Program including bowling, Secret Pal Club and bus trips.
  • A volunteer Board of Directors governs The Arc. Funding comes from memberships, government contracts, United Way funds, fundraising events, and gifts from foundations.
  • The Arc also offers an evening drop-in program called STEP for school age students in Northumberland County. Please call our office at 570-286-1008 for further details on this program.
