The Arc is pleased to announce that it has assumed oversight of Club Impact, one of Portland’s most active social programs for people with IDD.

This social club was founded in 2010, and hosts a drop-in virtual social every Monday night from 6-8pm. (See our Facebook Event tab for login details. You do not need to have a Facebook account to access the information.) Participants socialize and build lasting relationships while playing games, celebrating birthdays, having scavenger hunts, or just hanging out.

During the COVID pandemic, Club Impact’s Monday evening drop-in events went digital with the support of The Arc. Like so many of you, we are eager for the return of our Monday evening drop-ins and annual special events! We continue to meet virtually until state and local authorities deem it safe to resume in-person events.

Volunteers Always Welcome!

Club Impact volunteers help support socialization and get to join in the fun each week. Volunteers are asked to commit to at least one Monday a month. For more information on how to get involved, please contact The Arc.
