The Arc in Hawaii is a private, not-for-profit organization committed to providing quality direct and advocacy services for all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) in Hawaii. We believe in working with people so they are able to do things for themselves rather than having others doing things for them.
The Arc in Hawaii has provided quality services since 1954. The Arc in Hawaii provides direct services in the areas of Adult Day Health, Residential, and Waiver. Presently, the Arc operates three centers (Honolulu, Pearl City and Wahiawa) and twenty-one community-based residences for people with ID/DD. We assist participants in striving toward and reaching their individual goals. More information about the services provided by The Arc in Hawaii are described below.
