Offering Hope. Providing Direction.

Creating art for others to enjoySo much of who we are and what we stand for is embodied in the values shared by Noble staff, volunteers and those with whom we work each day. As The Arc of Greater Indianapolis and an advocate for those we serve, we strive to uphold the ideals set forth by The Arc US:

People First

Noble believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability.

Equity

Noble believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society, and are equal before the law.

Community

Noble believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.

Self-Determination

Noble believes in self-determination and self-advocacy. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.

Diversity

Noble believes that society in general, and Noble in particular, benefit from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics, (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age, gender identity and sexual orientation).
