The Arc of Wayne was incorporated on October 1, 1964 by a group of dedicated parents, volunteers, and advocates in an effort to provide more opportunities for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Prior to The Arc Wayne being formed, there were very few quality services and supports for anyone with a disability in the community. The team of Eleanor & Joseph VanHaelst, Gerald Campbell, David Breen, Lou Anne Montemorano, John & Amelia Catholdi, Bessie Schnabel, Mary Laudenslayer, and Janet Mosher came together to provide schooling, transportation, and day services for their children and others with disabilities in the community who needed services.

Today, The Arc Wayne has evolved into a private nonprofit with more than 550 employees serving about 1,700 individuals in the community through nearly three dozen programs and services across eight counties. The agency serves individuals from birth until the end of his or her life through a variety of services including Roosevelt Children's Center, residential, job placements, clinic, transportation and more. The Arc Wayne is always looking for new and innovative ways to serve the community, especially those with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The Arc Wayne is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
