Welcome to Favarh

"The Arc of the Farmington Valley"
Favarh helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities live as independently as possible, experience continual growth and live the lives they want to lead.

More About Us

  • Our success started with a deep belief in the potential of every human being to achieve their personal best, in all aspects of life. Favarh focuses on and integrates the three pillars of independent living:

    1) Productive engagement in the community
    2) Offering supported living and residential choices
    3) Teaching people how to live healthy and enriching lives.

  • Within each of these three areas, Favarh offers a rich array of inclusive programs and supports, so that we can customize our services to the specific needs of each person that we serve.

    The Arc of the Farmington Valley, Inc. is best known, and often referred to, as Favarh (pronounced FAY-var). Favarh is a chapter of the Arc, the world's largest community-based advocacy organization for people with intellectual, physical and developmental disabilities.

  • Founded by families of people living with disabilities in 1958, Favarh now serves more than 400 children, young adults, adults, seniors and families in Connecticut's Farmington Valley and beyond. We continue to be governed by families and employ more than 250 people, making us the largest employer in Canton and engage more than 200 volunteers.
