THE ARC OF ANCHORAGE, INC. Records; 1957-2000. 10.7 cu. ft.

The Arc of Anchorage, formerly known as the Association for Retarded Citizens of Anchorage, Inc. (ARCA), was founded in 1957 under the name, Parent's Association for Retarded Children of Anchorage (PARCA). The organization's primary purpose was to provide special education programs for retarded children. PARCA was able to acquire some quonset huts on E Street for classes in 1957, before Central and Denali schools develeped special education programs in 1958. After ten years of effort to acquire land and funding for a permanent structure, a school building was completed in November, 1968. The organization incorporated in May, 1964, changing its name to the Association for Retarded Citizens of Anchorage. In 1971, Chugach Rehabilitation, Inc., a program providing vocational services to handicapped adults, merged with ARCA and was renamed Rehabilitation Industries. ARCA completed its present main multi-purpose building in 1976, which housed the Employment Training Center of Alaska. ARCA continued to provide habilitation and rehabilitation services until 1979, when operation of these services were turned over to the State of Alaska, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. The Arc of Anchorage presently operates the ARCA Activity Center, providing independent living, social, and leisure programs. The organization is also involved in the operation of Value Village thrift store (since 1986), residential services (since 1984), and community based services to aid the developmentally disabled.

The collection consists of organizational records of The Arc of Anchorage. It is divided into twenty series: constitution, articles of incorporation, and bylaws; board of directors meeting minutes; executive director's reports; program director's reports; general membership meeting minutes; outgoing correspondence to members; legal documents; financial records; manuals and handbooks; membership records; grant funding and proposal files; organizational subject files; miscellaneous organizational and related records; building program records; plans and drawings; publications; newspaper clippings and scrapbooks; photographs and slides; artifacts; and videotape cassettes.
