The Arc Mid-South carries out its mission of protecting and promoting the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families through innovative programs. Our initiatives touch almost every aspect of life in the community. By sharing our knowledge and conducting training and events, our programs help connect communities and inform efforts to broaden inclusion across the Mid-South.

Get to know us

Based in Memphis, Tennessee, The Arc Mid-South is a 501c3 non-profit agency dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential. We are committed to providing advocacy and services which enable individuals with disabilities to realize their uniqueness, worth, and full inclusion in society. We offer a wide variety of programs and services for individuals with disabilities, such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, and other developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Our philosophy is to promote the public awareness of people with disabilities and their special needs. Like The Arc of Tennessee, we value diversity and do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, religion, age, geographic location, sexual orientation, gender, or level of disability.
