The Friends of the Arc Foundation’s role is to secure, manage, and steward philanthropic support to benefit the mission and core values of The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter. The Foundation is governed and represented by a Board of Directors made up of community-based volunteers, including business leaders and individuals who hold The Arc and the people they support as a personal priority.
The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter's mission is to enable persons with disabilities and their families to achieve their potential through self-determined goals in partnership with the Agency. We will provide leadership in our community to develop the necessary human and financial resources to fulfill this mission.
Our Core Values of Compassion, Dignity, Dedication, Person-Centered, Family Based, Progressive, and Integrity reflect our work at The Arc and provide the foundation of our culture and the backdrop of our everyday interactions. We must have this set of values to guide and unify us in the vital work that we do.
