Membership in The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter, NYSARC plays a critical role in our ability to advocate for and provide programs and supports for the children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who live in your community.
Membership provides clout! A large membership means that a louder and strong voice is heard by state legislators and national policy makers. At The Arc, Oneida-Lewis we want to give each one of the 2,000 people we support a voice.
Membership helps fulfill many of our agency’s needs, including volunteers for programs and committees, manpower and energy for fundraising, public awareness, special events and other important activities. Membership also means a better informed public. Awareness is crucial to acceptance and to expanding opportunities for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to fully participate in the community.
Help Us Reach Our Goal!
