Created in 2021, Arc GLOW, a chapter of The Arc New York, is the result of the merger of two successful and long-standing organizations, The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming and Arc of Genesee Orleans.

Arc GLOW is a private, non-profit parent- and family-driven organization that empowers and supports people of all ages with a broad spectrum of emotional, intellectual and developmental disabilities. In our name Arc GLOW, GLOW is an acronym for the counties we serve — Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming.


We are dedicated to helping people we serve meet their full potential and find fulfillment in learning, personal relationships, employment, volunteerism, recreation, the arts, and more. Our goal is to eliminate barriers and help individuals engage in the world. 


Our vision is that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will be valued members of their communities with the opportunity to realize their full potential and a future that is secure. 

We invite you to learn more about us, ask questions and visit our facilities as we put our combined 100-plus years of dedication and experience to work creating a bright and exciting future for our communities, individuals served and their families.
