Systems Advocacy

Information & Referral

Assisting individuals and families in obtaining or using services, information is provided and referrals made to appropriate organizations or agencies for requesting families.


The Arc of the Mid Ohio Valley monitors the quality of services being provided, through participation in the development of legislation and regulations, serving on Human Rights Committees, serving on community and state-wide boards of agencies, and participating in planning efforts for services.


Working for systems change, staff, consumers, and volunteers are involved to identify needs for change and/or improvement and work to enact these changes.
