Board & Staff

Our staff has a strong commitment to serving the many constituents of our organization. But first and foremost, they focus their energies on advocating for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

Our board represents a cross-section of our community and has a passion for The Arc of Nebraska and those we serve. The members work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization and oversee that the funds raised directly affect those in need.
