The Arc's Chapters
With close to 700 Chapters nationwide, The Arc is dedicated to reducing the incidence of FASD, which is caused by maternal consumption of alcohol during pregnancy. Our ability to mobilize local advocates, volunteers and personnel of The Arc to personally connect with local health care providers and provide them with educational materials is a critical component in delivering our message and achieving our mission.
The FASD Prevention project awards mini-grants to state and local chapters of The Arc. Currently, several chapters of The Arc provide FASD-related services.
