The Arc of Butte County is a nonprofit, charitable community organization, on a mission since 1953 to help individuals with developmental disabilities and their families live meaningful lives!

Dedicated to ensuring the opportunity for individuals with developmental disabilities to realize goals and enhance their quality of life, The Arc of Butte County began as a group of parents seeking support and guidance from each other, as well as their government.
