The Arc Southeastern Minnesota

The Arc Southeastern Minnesota advocates for, and supports, families every day.

The Arc is the agency that has successfully advocated for Day Activity Programs, Public School participation, supported employment, Park and Recreation programs,  and virtually every other activity that has allowed our son, Andy, to be included in our community. - Arne Fockler, parent

(The Arc SE MN) Housing Access Services Program was the answer to my prayers. It helped to make my dream come true. I live independently, on my own. My whole life has changed completely. - Karli Harguth, self-advocate

The Arc is the agency we turned to when we moved to Rochester in 1990. The Autism Support Group was very helpful for us at a time when autism was not as widely diagnosed as it is now. - Marcia Steenhard, parent 

The Arc Southeastern Minnesota has provided our family with valuable information, support and advocacy for over 30 years as we have raised our daughter with a disability. We have been able to improve the quality of her life through the thoughtful assistance of The Arc. Our community is fortunate to have such a priceless resource. - Peggy O'Toole Martin, parent

After my three year old was labeled with Autism in Spring 2002, I found myself spending hours alone trying to find resources and support and ways to advocate for my child. Someone suggested The Arc Southeastern Minnesota. I connected with an advocate and will always remember that tearful call that changed our lives. Our advocate "saved" us, helping our child to victory by offering assistance thorough parental education, empowerment, and advocacy. Thank you Arc! - Bobbi Kostinec, parent

The Arc SE MN supports our family everyday. They advocate to make sure services remain in place for our family. When we had our son Andrew we knew that we could not do it alone, we knew we would need help. We call The Arc SE MN and they are there for us. When we called with a questions, they answered it for us. When we needed support at meetings or at a doctor appointment they are right there to support us. - Karen Larson, parent
