The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc) is proud to announce the promotion of Jodie Colombo to Director of Day Services. In her new role, Jodie will lead The Arc’s community-based Day Services program, which provides opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to participate in volunteer and recreational activities throughout the community that align with their unique desires, interests, and needs.

“I am honored to take on this new role and find new ways of ensuring people with IDD are actively connecting with their communities in the ways they want to,” Jodie said. “I am proud of the incredible work the Day Services team is already doing, and am excited to be leading a team that already has a reputation of going above and beyond in providing fully tailored services.”

Jodie has worked at The Arc for 12 years, from 2008 to 2017 and 2021 through the present. She led The Arc’s Day Services once before with great success. Most recently, Jodie served as our Assistant Director of Children, Youth, & Their Families, supporting families of young children with IDD to access critical resources, connect with their school systems, and become empowered advocates for their children. Jodie has already been serving as the interim Director of Day Services and has demonstrated incredible resourcefulness, dedication, and creativity in the role.

“Jodie is a dynamic leader who embodies the core values of The Arc in her daily work,” said Jonathon Rondeau, President & CEO. “She is passionate about the work we do and is excellent at supporting people to make authentic connections throughout the community.”

Jodie’s leadership will focus on improving the quality of services as well as strategic support for our Community Coaches and Day Services leaders, maximizing our impact through providing person-centered, individualized, and meaningful support. We are confident that under her leadership, The Arc’s Day Services will continue to expand and redefine what high-quality Day Services look like.
