The Arc of Franklin & Fulton Counties works toward the goal of having people with developmental disabilities fully participate in civil, social, educational, health and employment activities in the communities in which they reside, with the opportunity to grow to their fullest potential in every way.

The Arc of Franklin-Fulton Counties is a member chapter of the Arc of Pennsylvania and an affiliate of The Arc of the United States.


Volunteers are essential to maintaining the everyday operations of the Arc. Volunteers are needed to help in the office, be board members, and assist with fundraisers, social events, or other projects. Please contact the office at 717-264-4390 if you would like to volunteer!


The Arc needs the support of the community by participating in our local fundraisers. You can do so by attending our basket bingo, and other fundraisers that may take place. Keep an eye on our website for upcoming fundraisers that you could be a part of.


The newsletter contains a calendar of events for consumers. It also provides helpful information related to services for persons with developmental disabilities, Arc membership, and information on upcoming fundraisers. You may request a newsletter at any time, or request to be put on the Arc's mailing list. No fee required.
