What We Do
We have all experienced the distinct difference between “house” and “home,” and The Arc of Opportunity’s Residential Supports desire is to help individuals and their families create the latter.
A safe, supportive, and holistic atmosphere committed to seeing men and women with disabilities achieve self-determined, physical, social, and educational goals to do more than they thought possible.
Creates a way for small groups or independent persons make meaningful contributions to their community by integrating into the local workforce.
Provides family members a safe, confidential, and judgment-free environment to face the unique aspects of supporting an individual with a disability.
Provides safe and secure experiences, from day trips to long weekends, for men and women with disabilities to have a new experience, make new friends, and most of all have fun.
