        Annual Report 2005
...a new Arc   In 2005, the leaders of Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-Carver unveiled a new vision: one metro-
               wide Arc uniting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families across the
               Twin Cities. Members voiced their support of that vision by approving a merger between the two
               chapters in December. On January 1, 2006, Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-Carver became Arc
               Greater Twin Cities.

               The merger was the top story of 2005 for Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-Carver. It was a year of
               tremendous change as the two chapters determined how to integrate programs, services and resources
               to best serve individuals and families throughout the new seven-county service area.

               However, some things have remained constant. Arc is still about making a difference in people’s lives.
               That is the real vision of Arc Greater Twin Cities: to create more connections among more people so
               more of their stories have happy endings.

               Arc’s Mission
               To secure for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families the
               opportunity to choose and realize their goals of where and how they live, learn, work and play.
                        Sixty years ago, a small group of parents and educators came together

                        to create more opportunities for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They
                        realized that by working together, they could be more powerful, more persuasive and more
                        effective. From that group, Arc was born.

                        Arc chapters sprang up across the Twin Cities and then, over time, these small chapters began to
                        unite until just two chapters remained in the Twin Cities: Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-

                        Arc: Arc Greater Twin Cities.

                        The merger was a tremendous endeavor for both Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-Carver.
                        Many people spent many hours delving into issues and figuring out countless details to make the
                        merger a success.

                        At the same time, Arc Great Rivers and Arc Hennepin-Carver continued to provide their full

                        21,000 people in 2005.

                        This special combination annual report covers the separate accomplishments of Arc Great Rivers
                        and Arc Hennepin-Carver as well as the creation of Arc Greater Twin Cities. It’s an apt reflection
                        of 2005 for the two organizations – some efforts in tandem, others distinct to each chapter.

                        The reasons for creating one metro-wide Arc are essentially the ones that first brought our

                        progress in establishing human rights and bringing people with disabilities into community
                        life. But we still have far to go. To create a world where people with disabilities are accepted,
                        included and valued, we must take the power of connections to the next level. That is what Arc
                        Greater Twin Cities is: a new Arc with a new vision.

  Arc’s Thrift Businesses

  More than half of the funding for Arc Hennepin-
  Carver’s programs and services came from its three
  thrift businesses: Arc’s Value Village Thrift Stores in
  Brooklyn Center, New Hope and Richfield; Arc’s Used
  Goods Pickup Service; and Autos for Arc. In 2005, they
  generated over $1.4 million.

  Arc’s thrift businesses raise more than money – they
  also raise awareness of Arc and its work. Together, they
  connect Arc with hundreds of thousands of people every
  year. The blue trucks of Arc’s Used Goods Pickup Service
  make about 145,000 stops at homes annually to collect
  donations of clothing and household goods. Arc’s three
  Value Village Thrift Stores serve more than half a million           Thrift Business 2005 Highlights
