The Arc of Katy works to create opportunities for all children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) that enable each person to be a participating and respected member of our community.
We identify existing opportunities and where needed provides programs or services as well as educational and recreational activities for citizens with IDD. The Arc of Katy’s programs are currently dedicated to providing day programs for those no longer in the public school system, and a summer camp for those still attending school.
These programs provide life-skills, entertainment, and a safe social setting. It sponsors social activities for its members.
Because of generous donations last year, we were able to increase our enrollment by 50 percent and expand the number of days of our program. Our Arc participants have given back to the Katy community by participating in Katy Area Chamber events and by serving others less fortunate like the residents of a local nursing home.
Our goal for 2013 is to find a permanent location for our Day Program. With the support of community members like YOU, “Together We Can!” make a difference in the lives of our Arc participants!
