Through a variety of settings and programs, the Arc of Allen County provides day care, educational training, human rights advocacy, and information and referral.
Founded in 1953, The Arc of Allen County established the first private school in the state of Ohio with the sole purpose of educating children with intellectual disabilities - The Robin Rogers School. Over the next 50 years, our organization has changed its services to reflect the constant change of challenges faced by those with disabilities. The Arc of Allen County is a 501 c3 nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax-deductible under section 170 of the IRS code.

- People First
