Achieve with us

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.

Arc Announcements

The Arc Mid-South bestowed a special honor on Ron Childers of WMC-TV Action News 5.
Mr. Childers has volunteered with The Arc Mid-South since 2015, serving as moderator for our annual Gala. His impact has been felt every single year, helping us to raise more than $100,000. To celebrate this selfless individual, we renamed our L.E.T.S. classroom: “Ron Childers Literacy & Life Skills Classroom”. Congratulations, Ron! Click here to read more.
