The Mission of the St. Louis Arc is to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to lead better lives by providing a lifetime of high-quality services, family support and advocacy. We are also guided by our core beliefs of Respect, Collaboration, and Empowerment.
We work hard to provide the kind of individualized services that can really help make a difference to an adult… to a child… to a family. Services provided are designed to maximize choice and to support people as they build quality lives within the St. Louis community.
The St. Louis Arc is recognized as a quality leader among professional agencies. Since 1983, St. Louis Arc has been accredited by The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to being a leader for excellence in the definition, measurement and evaluation of personal and community quality of life for people with disabilities. CQL standards are recognized by federal and state government as benchmarks for quality. We have been accredited by CQL continuously since 1983. In 2004 we were one of the first organizations in the world to be awarded a Value-Added accreditation from CQL and in 2012 received a Person-Centered Excellence accreditation.
