From Our Website

Arc of Greater New Orleans (ArcGNO) is a 67-year-old non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the independence and well-being of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and autism. Our staff currently support over 600 individuals throughout Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, Plaquemines and St. Tammany parishes. ArcGNO's Executive Director Gives an Update on the Agency's Status during COIVD-19: In the 67 years Arc of Greater New Orleans (ArcGNO) has been in existence, it has experienced a lot.

ArcGNO provides a variety of services to individuals of all ages. We assist parents of infants (0-3 years) to find effective therapies and treatments. We help students explore their options for the future after high school. We provide job coaching and placement for those seeking employment, day activities that enable individuals to be active and integrated into the community, and personal care attendants to assist with a variety of tasks in the home and around the community. In 1953 a group of concerned parents joined forces to provide better lives for their children who, because of developmental delays and intellectual disabilities, were not able to participate in everyday society.

ArcGNO welcomes community members, professionals, and skilled labor to help us advocate for and empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have many volunteer opportunities available. ArcGNO collected more than 160 tons of Mardi Gras throws in 2019, saving them from drains and landfills around New Orleans. Now, we need your help to sort and package them! The more recycled throws we sell, the more jobs we create for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
