The membership campaign is a very important part of The Arc of East Ascension. The support of the community assists our efforts in providing quality services to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The money generated by membership helps to provide continued services, education and training.

Membership gives people in our community the opportunity to assist in various ways both directly and indirectly. Members can contribute by serving on various committees or on our Board of Directors. As a member, you play an important role in The Arc of East Ascension, and you qualify to vote for candidates seeking Board appointment. During the November election, members in good standing are eligible to run for office or vote on future Arc of East Ascension’s Board of Directors members. The Board of Directors is a vital part of the planning and direction of The Arc of East Ascension. Members who are dedicated to the well being and the needs of The Arc of East Ascension are very important to the future success of this organization.
Membership encourages the community to stay involved with the Arc of East Ascension’s purpose and directive by advocating for the individuals we serve and the services we provide.

The Arc of East Ascension is a non-profit organization providing services and activities to individuals with developmental disabilities. Very few all-inclusive activities are available in the community to include those individuals with developmental disabilities. The Arc of East Ascension plans activities throughout the year, but funding is needed to ensure they continue. Our activities keep our individuals active and aid in adding normalcy to their daily lives. The Arc of East Ascension activities include three dances per year and outings to the zoo, rodeo, etc. If you would like to make a secure, online financial donation to The Arc of East Ascension, please click on the appropriate link below.
