KCARC's Board of Directors is comprised of fourteen individuals throughout Knox County who have a sole interest in what is best for the individuals served. Board members vary from parents of individuals with disabilities, to doctors,  school board members, an attorney, businessmen and women, and a Knox County judge. They call Knox County home; a better place to live, in part, because of the efforts they make on behalf of KCARC. They each work with out remuneration and give freely of their time, talents, and efforts. All this, while representing the values that have been adopted by KCARC.
