Who We Are

Arc of Maui County was established in 1954 by a group of parents and concerned citizens who sought services for their children with developmental disabilities when none were available. Our agency is the shared vision of many dedicated parents, family members, people with disabilities, staff and advocates from the community and across the nation.

Arc of Maui County promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by actively supporting programs and services that assure full inclusion and participation in the community throughout life with focus on the individuals’ strengths, abilities and inherent value.
