Arkansas Support Network

Supporting Choices and Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities and their Families since 1988


We recognize and support every person’s right to be included in the life of the community.

It is our belief that every person has the right to live in a loving home and in a caring community as an active and accepted member. Our intent is to support the presence and participation of children and adults with developmental disabilities in their homes and communities.


We envision a future where individuals with developmental disabilities have power and choice in making decisions and directing their lives; have relationships with people whom they love and care for and who love and care for them; receive recognition for the gifts they bring to our community; are actively involved in the communities where they live; have meaningful employment free of discrimination; and have opportunities to live healthy, safe, and enjoyable lives.
