The Arc of San Angelo is committed to expanding opportunities for people with disabilities to be included in their communities. The Arc supports families, advances public policies, provides training programs, and builds a local network of advocates.

The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

Disability is the only minority group that any of us can join at any time. It knows no boundaries, it does not discriminate by age, race, or sex and it can strike in a moment.

Court Visitor Program

The purpose is to train community volunteers and students to visit individuals, on behalf of the Court, and prepare reports which are then reviewed by the Court. This important monitoring function enables the Court to have first-hand information regarding the persons under its supervision and determine whether a guardianship should be continued, modified, terminated or other actions be taken.

Guardianship Alliance

The Guardianship Alliance program recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to serve as Advocates for low-income individuals with decision-making needs that have no other family or friends willing or appropriate to serve as their guardian.

Supported Decision-Making

Supported Decision-Making is a method of decision-making which allows families to avoid rights removal and costly legal fees when a possible Agreement can be executed between one willing to provide decision-making support to one who needs help with understanding or communicating their own choices, desires. It is one method used for self-determination, where the person manages their own life with individualized supports.

2019 SAVE THE DATE!!! Walk for Autism

Saturday April 27, 2019

8:30AM - 11:00AM

Angelo State University

Pavillion at the Campus Green

The AACV Walk for Autism is our biggest community event, and only major fundraiser. Participants are encouraged to form teams, recruit members, set fund raising goals, and rally together to raise money for a great cause.

On Walk Day, we have a host of activities and sensory-friendly family fun. Walkers can visit our resource fair to get information and make valuable connections with the autism resources available right here in West Texas.

We are thrilled to announce that 2018 was a HUGE year for the AACV, thanks entirely to our teams and sponsors. We broke our record by bringing in over $40,000 in funds, every cent of which will be spent on supporting those with autism in the San Angelo area.
