Make a Donation

The Arc of DFW Area was founded in 1971 and it is able to continue serving the I/DD community because of the generous support of our donors and sponsors and our history of fiscal responsibility.

Your Donation supports The Arc of DFW Area, empowering people to live the life they want. With your help, we grow stronger.

Statement from one of our donors, Debbie Wilkes

With over 40 years of supporting people developmental disabilities and having a grandchild with IDD, I choose to support The Arc of DFW Area. The organization and tireless volunteers help families navigate the maze of public school and plan for a quality transition throughout all life’s changes and challenges.  Through their legislative activities The Arc of the DFW Area works educate legislators about the issues surrounding funding to support a life in the community.

Your donations directly support our advocacy, awareness and education programs. Lives are changed when individuals with I/DD, their parents, and family members have a place to turn for resources and support and The Arc of DFW Area is run by and for families to purposefully provide this empowerment.

A Statement from James & Michelle Lunday

When we began our journey in the I/DD community, we didn’t know what to do or where to turn, and we didn’t know what the future would hold.  Being a part of The Arc of DFW Area has been a true blessing to our family.  The Arc has helped us navigate challenges by providing us knowledge and true friendships to support us along the way.  Most of all, it has helped us develop a vision for our family’s future and a voice to advocate for that vision.
