Educational Advocacy

Effective July 2nd, 2018:


The Arc’s Educational Advocacy Program will continue to provide Educational Advocacy services, however, our process has changed.


The new process will include our partner, Michigan Alliance for Families.


Families will continue to contact The Arc at 269-966-2575.


Initial intake information will be collected (if you are a returning family, information will still need to be collected in order to update what we have on file).


After initial intake information is collected, a Parent Mentor will contact you.


All information and referral calls/inquiries will be supported by our Parent Mentor.
