Service areas: Over 45 North Carolina counties
We believe in people, even when they may not believe in themselves. We believe that people living with intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance use challenges deserve the chance to define themselves not by their diagnoses, but by their dreams.
History: Established in 1958, Monarch is a nonprofit organization that provides innovative supports statewide to thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance use disorders. Through telepsychiatry, same day outpatient services, crisis services, including mobile crisis – and North Carolina’s first of its kind SECU Youth Crisis Center for children and teens ages 6-17 – we offer quality treatment when people need it most.
Mission: Monarch is committed to supporting, educating, and empowering people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, mental illness, and substance use disorders to choose and achieve what is important to them.
Monarch’s day programs, residential, educational, employment and community services provide person-centered options to help people learn, grow, work and heal. Monarch is nationally accredited by The Joint Commission. The organization operates The Arc of Stanly County, which is a chapter of The Arc of North Carolina and The Arc of the United States.
