NOTE- Beginning in the fall of 2022, The Arc of York County and The Arc of Adams County began the process of merging to better serve individuals in York and Adams Counties.  Although we are still awaiting our official name change to "The Arc of York and Adams Counties," we proudly serve all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in both York and Adams Counties.
