Liberty ARC, a 501 (c)3, non-profit organization, was founded in 1957 by parents of children with developmental disabilities.

These dedicated, caring parents wished to establish special education programs and support groups in the local community. This grassroots effort has grown exponentially over the past six  decades but Liberty ARC has stayed true to the original vision- offering top-quality programs and services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. While, still staying committed to our framework the agency established, we have grown to include employment/vocational, residential, day supports, family support and health-related services to more than 580 individuals throughout Montgomery County.
