My Own Place, formerly known as The Arc of the District of Columbia residential services division, was established in October 2003 and formally transferred from the Arc on October 20, 2006.

My Own Place is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, established to maximize the independence of individuals with intellectual and  developmental disabilities, through advocating  and providing a standard of living that is driven by choices, preferences and desires.

This is accomplished by providing ongoing opportunities to learn preferred skills via staff assistance and support that enable individuals to live a life of independence and dignity.

My Own Place is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which meets regularly to establish organization policy. 

Staff is employed to further the mission of the organization in accordance with established policies and procedures and based on all governing laws and regulations.
