About Us

Change drives us;
people define us

The Arc Oneida-Lewis is one of many chapters of The Arc New York statewide organization. We provide a full spectrum of educational, vocational, employment, residential, family support, guardianship, respite, recreational rehabilitation, day habilitation, clinical, children, adult, and senior services for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Our agency is staffed by over 700 professionals and serves over 1,400 people throughout Oneida and Lewis Counties.

Have a question about the services we offer, availability, or eligibility? Please contact us, and we are happy to assist you.

Our mission is to enable persons with disabilities and their families to achieve their potential through self-determined goals in partnership with the agency. We will provide leadership in our community to develop the necessary human and financial resources to fulfill this mission.

Our vision is that all persons with disabilities live as fully included members of their community.

Our Core Values of Compassion, Dignity, Dedication, Integrity, Progressive, and Person Centered-Family Based reflect our work and serve as the foundation of our culture and the backdrop of our everyday interactions. This set of clearly defined values guides us, one unified team, in carrying out our vital mission.

Our Core Values are incorporated into the orientation and training of all new employees. By supporting our Core Values, we all contribute to a culture of positivity, stability, and vision necessary for the Arc to thrive in the years to come.

Founded in 1954, The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter has been a premier human services agency in the healthcare field. Our agency was started by parents who envisioned a rich, full life for their children with disabilities, inclusive of their community. Many of those families still champion these efforts today. 

Here are some easy ways for you to get involved in carrying out our mission.
