“Resilience In Motion”
After the last few years, how we live our everyday lives has changed dramatically. The impact of a pandemic on our work, our shopping habits, our recreation, and entertainment, and how we simply interact with each other is different. Our world has changed. People with disabilities, their families, disability support providers, and practitioners had to adjust to this environment. We have overcome these barriers and continue to focus on advocacy while rising above with resilience! We move forward with confidence!
What We Do

Since 1955 The Arc New Mexico has been on the front lines in making change happen for people diagnosed with Autism, Down syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and a range of diagnoses across the spectrum of intellectual and developmental disabilities.
