Membership Donation

Join the movement of The Arc by becoming a member!  You can become a member through a local chapter in your area or through the state chapter, The Arc of Alabama.  Membership automatically entitles you to membership with The Arc/US (visit  to see get discounts on certain purchases and other benefits!).

Your membership with The Arc of Alabama is used to directly support advocacy initiatives like Policy Partners as well as other outreach programs that share the needs of those with I/DD and their families in Alabama.  Most people are unfamiliar with services available to them and often call in desperation of needed advocacy or supports.  Service delivery systems are often overwhelming and difficult for self-advocates and families to understand and navigate.  and the environment for needed supports are evermore changing which makes it necessary to stay involved at all levels of advocacy – legislative, systems reform or community!  The Arc of Alabama and its 29 local chapters remain the largest advocacy network in Alabama.
