HISTORY OF THE POINT ARC
For Judi Gerding, President and Founder of The Point Arc, it has been a personal journey to foster a better life for her son, Steve, and other individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (known as I/DD). At a young age, Steve was diagnosed with Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. Our history of “filling in the gaps” by creating integrated programs gives individuals with I/DD the opportunity to become contributing and inclusive members of our community and provides the self-esteem and pride that we all seek.
The Point Arc now serves more than 1,400 people annually through its programs and services. The Point Arc is always looking for new ways to fill in the service gaps and to integrate individuals with I/DD in the community to reach their fullest potential.
