Responding to Covid-19: Update September 8, 2020


The Arc of Katy began its fall program on Monday, Aug. 31,  offering online curriculum five days a week, Monday through Friday, and monthly online socials. Also, as numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are reduced in area counties, The Arc of Katy staff and volunteers are making plans for restarting in person programs in the near future.   

Through generosity of our community, The Arc of Katy will continue to open doors of opportunity for teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. While our in person day programs are closed, we have much lower revenue but still have significant expenses. As we look forward to re-opening when feasible, we ask for your ongoing support.

Please consider donating at a level meaningful to you. Together we can make a difference in the lives of people with I/DD and their families. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your support.
