Mission Statement
The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville is a family based organization that promotes, protects and advocates for the right of people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to live self-determined, meaningful lives in inclusive communities.

Vision Statement
The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville envisions communities in which people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are:

-Accorded the respect, dignity, equality, safety and security to which all members of society are entitled
-Have the opportunity to actively participate in all aspects of society
-Have access to the supports and resources they need in order to make and act on decisions about their own lives.

Advocacy & Education
The Arc is the nation’s largest disability organization, and as such, can be a powerful advocate for the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville advocates at both local and national levels, providing information, resources, and referrals to Tennesseans with disabilities and providing policy updates and action alerts regarding disability-related laws. We provide resources for both community advocacy and individual advocacy, as well as offer resources for trainings to help families who have a member with disabilities better advocate for themselves.
