‘Evening of Discovery’ showcases those supported by Arc of Dutchess

In 1971, a group of special education teachers of The Little Red School House, led by Catherine Seeberger, started thinking differently.

As one of Dutchess County’s largest providers of support services for individuals with disabilities, The Arc of Dutchess envisions a world in which all people with disabilities are recognized as valued members of society. Its mission is to respect and support what matters to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and to work tirelessly to promote their right to achieve full inclusion and participation in the community.
