Community Inclusion

Community inclusion is important because all people, regardless of their abilities, should be able to participate and engage in a full range of community activities. At The Arc of High Point, the principles of community inclusion inform and fuel all of our programs. Our mission is community inclusion and how we implement it to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to live as independently as possible.

Community inclusion is the opportunity to live and exist as a contributing member of the community while being valued for one’s abilities and uniqueness — regardless of disability. The ultimate goal of community inclusion is the participation of people with IDDs across a range of areas, including:

  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Recreation and Leisure
  • Civic Engagement
  • Peer Support 
  • And more

Examples of inclusion are when students with disabilities are educated in the exact schools they would’ve attended if they didn’t have disabilities; or when adults with disabilities fully participate in an employment environment and are engaged as community members.
