About TARC

TARC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and proud Partner Agency of the Tulsa Area United Way. TARC educates, empowers, advocates, and supports individuals with developmental disabilities, and their families, through a network of programs and services designed to ensure a high quality of life for all Oklahomans. Serving individuals throughout their lifespan, TARC programs include parent and family support (pre-birth through high school), self-advocacy, public policy and advocacy, grief support, and Oklahoma Advocates Involved in Monitoring, a program monitoring the quality-of-life for those living in state-supporting residential housing.

The agency was founded in 1952 by parents of children with disabilities who faced lives in which few options existed beyond institutional care.
