Welcome to The Arc of Fort Bend County

Advocacy, support and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.


The Arc Celebrates 50 Years, 1968 – 2018

From early on, The Arc realized the need for group homes and learning centers in our community. After we purchased our first commercial property, on Glen Lakes Blvd in 1980, we began acquiring residential properties located throughout Ft. Bend County for use as group homes.

Today, The Arc owns seventeen homes, along with two commercial properties. The residential homes are leased to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities or to providers at below market rates, enabling our clients to live in well-maintained homes in vibrant and safe neighborhoods.
