What are our clients are saying about us?

KATE, sister of a trust beneficiary Virginia

His siblings and I were panicked.

It is impossible to think of all the future needs of your family member.

And this offers a sense of security for those who support that family member.

ELIZABETH, Attorney Virginia

The greatest strengths of The Arc of Northern Virginia is their experience and their expertise in the special needs arena.

They're not going to make a mistake.

LINDA, mother of a trust beneficiary Virginia

My son is safe.

It's the reliability, it's the validity, it's the loyalty they have. It's the understanding of all individuals with disabilities.

It's the dignity that they want to provide for people later in life.
