Description

The Arc of Westmoreland, a private nonprofit corporation, was founded in 1954 by a group of 13 parents meeting at the Irwin Park Playground in Irwin, PA. These families recognized the need for community services for children and adults with disabilities. Since its founding and official incorporation in 1962, the volunteer-driven organization continues to grow in scope and commitment as one of the largest providers of services for children and adults with special needs in Westmoreland County. Affiliation with ACHIEVA family of organizations: July 1, 2009, The Arc of Westmoreland and ACHIEVA family of organizations unanimously approved an affiliation. Thus began a new chapter and gave both organizations an opportunity to expand supports and services to children and adults with disabilities in Southwestern PA as well as to become more efficient through economies of scale.
