About Us

The Arc is the world’s largest community based organization of and for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our history, stability, and expertise are well documented. The Arc of Northern Virginia chapter was established in 1963 and continues to be a leader in advocating and supporting individuals with disabilities and their families.

Our knowledge of federal government benefit programs is current. We apply this knowledge, working to ease the individual’s and/or family’s burden of having to navigate yet another system. By doing so, you or your child’s entitlement to public benefits is preserved while allowing the individual with disabilities to receive the benefit of the trust assets.

The Foundation of The Arc of Northern Virginia oversees a 501(c)(3) Special Needs Trust (SNT) Program. The Trust Team handles the day-to-day management of disbursements to be used on behalf of the SNT Beneficiary and their families.  By offering a one-time enrollment fee, as well as low annual fees, our SNT Program is affordable to families and individuals with disabilities. While The Foundation of The Arc of Northern Virginia serves as the Trust Manager, Key Private Bank serves as Trustee and provides professional investment services, hold real property, and provide advisement on vestments of $250,000 or more.

We offer continuity, reliability, and expertise while providing exceptional trust management services and support to families and individuals with all disabilities in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC.
