The mission of The Arc of Massachusetts is to enhance the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism, and their families.
The Arc fulfills this mission through advocacy for community supports and services that foster social inclusion, self-determination, and equity across all aspects of society.

ADDP's mission is to promote and ensure strength of community-based providers, so provider members can be successful in improving quality, access and value of services in the community.
ADDP is committed to enhancing the political, financial, and educational health of member organizations that serve people with disabilities, including intellectual and developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries.
The Providers’ Council is a statewide association of primarily nonprofit, community-based organizations that provide human services, health, education and vocational supports to 1 in 10 residents in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Learn more about the issues facing human services providers on the Providers’ Council website.
Through a person-centered approach, we design individualized programs that build on the strengths of the whole person, enabling them to live as independently as possible in their community.
We count on donors like you, so our clients can continue to reach their goals through therapies and activities.
