Vision 2020 Campaign Final Report

vision 2020 campaign header image


We Made Our Goal!

The Arc of Northern Virginia is grateful for the generous support of the many members of our community who ensured that The Arc of Northern Virginia was able to meet the extraordinary needs of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) in what is most likely the most challenging period of our 59-year history.


Together, we were able to raise over $220,000 to make Vision 2020 a reality!


Thanks to dedicated donors—individuals, families, foundations, and companies large and small—we were able to:

  • Pivot and convert our programs, workshops, and advocacy into virtual formats to continue providing vital services and supports when the families we serve are facing even more challenges than usual.
  • Advise families to help them adjust and overcome the continually changing circumstances.
  • Advocate for greater vaccine coverage for the ID/DD community, more visitation rights in hospitals, and greater flexibility with Medicaid to allow families to use their public services in a way that adapted to their pandemic-time needs.
  • Ensure that people with ID/DD who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) were not excluded from receiving Economic Impact payments.
  • Enable people with disabilities and their families to move forward with important plans and dreams despite the obstacles 2020 placed in their way.


With this sustaining encouragement, we can continue the fight for full inclusion for those with ID/DD; to further our advocacy to bring public policy in line with our vision; to connect services and providers with those families who desperately need the support; to provide for financial security; to educate and inform; and to raise awareness across the broader community to the idea that everyone deserves “A Life Like Yours.”
