Aloha and welcome to The Arc in Hawaii. The Arc in Hawaii is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 1954 by a group of parents of children with intellectual disabilities. As the state chapter of The Arc of the United States, The Arc in Hawaii is part of the largest national organization devoted solely to working on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities.
