Celebrating 30 Years of the Americans With Disabilities Act
It's been 30 years since President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law. Hear from members of The Arc of Texas about how the ADA has shaped where we are today and what their hopes are for the future.
Established in 1997, The Arc of Texas Master Pooled Trust remains the first and only Texas-based Special Needs Trust designed to improve the quality of life for all individuals with disabilities while providing resources for their ongoing supplemental needs.
Affordable & Accessible
Low fees for establishing and maintaining a sub-account compared to a traditional bank trust.
Value for the Individual
Use your trust funds without jeopardizing your means-tested government benefits, like SSI or Medicaid.
Safe & Secure
Simple and prompt disbursement procedures so beneficiaries and their families can use the funds to meet the beneficiary's needs.
Value for Families
Protect and administer inherited money in a professional, caring, and cost-effective manner.
