About Us


The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming is a private, not-for-profit organization providing services to developmentally disabled individuals and their families in the Western New York counties of Livingston and Wyoming. The agency was founded in 1961 by a group of concerned parents.


Through residential, vocational rehabilitation, children's services, transportation, and community services programs, The Arc helps to enhance the lives of more than 900 community members who rely on services each year.


The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming also benefits the local economy as one of the area’s largest employers, with more than 600 employees. The agency's annual payroll is $12.5 million, and its operating budget of $25 million has more than doubled over the past 10 years, with steady growth each year.


In the Fall of 1961, The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming became a charter member of NYSARC, Inc., a private, not-for-profit association. NYSARC is currently comprised of 48 chapters serving thousands of New York State residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities. From its headquarters in Delmar, NY, NYSARC provides services to individuals and their families through local Chapters within each county of the State.
