WELCOME TO WWAARC
Connecting Special People With Opportunity!
Warren, Washington & Albany Counties ARC (WWAARC), A Chapter of The Arc New York, is a nonprofit organization serving nearly 1,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We operate 35 residences, 30 Supported Living Program (SLP) apartments, five day programs, Community Employment and have a free standing Respite Center. For over 65 years, WWAARC has represented a longstanding tradition of providing outstanding advocacy, family support, and the very best quality services to many people throughout Warren, Washington and Albany Counties.
The 2023 Membership campaign has begun! Membership is extremely important. The number of members we have directly impacted WWAARC’s ability to provide the best environment possible for the people we support and our employees. The Arc NY and its chapters are governed by a Board of Governors, made up of representatives chosen by the chapters. The number of seats each chapter holds on the board of governors (at the state level) is determined by its membership numbers.
