Welcome to The Arc of Loudoun
At The Arc of Loudoun, we strive to bring about a just, equitable world for people with disabilities.
We define a disability as any condition that prevents, delays, or interferes with a person’s typical development or optimal achievement. A disability may be classified as behavioral/emotional, developmental, intellectual, learning, physical, and/or sensory. Disabilities may be temporary – as when a person is healing from a broken bone, and disabilities may be invisible – as when someone is experiencing mental illness.
We work to provide a lifetime of opportunities for people with disabilities while advocating for, educating, serving, and supporting those individuals and their families.
“My son attended school on The Arc of Loudoun campus. We have always loved The Arc of Loudoun and the knowledgeable therapists there. We moved to the area from out of town because we fell in love with The Arc of Loudoun. In fact, the staff (unknowingly) changed the course of my life because I found them to be especially inspiring. I have nothing but the best of things to say about The Arc of Loudoun.”
