The Arc of DC is very excited to release our newest edition of Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to the DC City Council 2013 Oversight and 2014 Budget Hearings for Residents with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and their Families. For each of the past eight years, we have produced a comprehensive document that guides people with disabilities, families, advocates, government and Executive leadership in addressing issues related to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the annual budget process and hearings.
The mission of The Arc of the District of Columbia, Inc., is to enrich the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. We do this on a one-to-one level, offering counsel, family support, day programs, and employment opportunities. On a broader level, we affect lives through our public policy and advocacy initiatives, educating key policy makers about issues that affect your loved one.
