Thank you for joining The Arc of Kentucky for The Walk to Bridge the Gap to Success Walk.  We are a statewide grassroots volunteer organization that was created in 1955 to promote a better quality of life for Kentucky's children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  We encompass all ages and more than a 100 different diagnoses including Autism, Down Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome and various other developmental disabilities. 

The Arc of Kentucky is a well known and highly respected non-profit charitable organization.  Your interest in helping individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities enables us to offer supports such as scholarships to our families and self-advocates.  Donations will be used for education, advocacy, valuable resources, informative training opportunities, programs, and to support caregivers, professionals, families, and individuals in Kentucky.  We are a 501 (c) 3 organization. 

Have you ever worked or lived with people with intellectual disabilities, you know that many citizens with disabilities can achieve virtually full participation in the community given help and encouragement.  The Arc of Kentucky needs your financial support to ensure this vital mission.  The Arc of Kentucky's believes that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are contributing members of schools, work places, churches, neighborhoods, and their communities.  The Arc values services and supports that enhance the quality of life through friendship, interdependence, choice, and respect for individuals.   

Our organization's ability to continue to operate is due in large part to the generous support of individual donors who believe in our mission, as well as, gifts from businesses and corporations. 


Thank You! 

Janah lives, works and plays in her community. She enjoys singing, leading her drama class, and being a board member of The Arc of Kentucky. She is especially gifted as a self-advocate. She has a passion - advocating for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Her work continues to help The Arc.  


The Arc also helped Janah achieve her goal to become an advocate. She recently received the Susy Riffe Memorial Award for Achievement, which is presented to a Kentuckian over 25 with an intellectual disability, who has made a positive contribution through participation at work, in the home and the community. She is pictured (at right) with Representative Reginald Thomas.

You Can Help Protect Janah’s Right to Follow Her Dreams!
