At The Arc, the people we serve are at the center of everything we do. We build our services around what each person wants and needs, and we recognize for many people, what they need to be successful starts with having the right support at home. 

Supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be active and engaged in the community starts with ensuring they first receive the support they need at home. The Arc’s Living Options & Services program creates opportunities for people throughout the community to live the life they want. 

Whether you’re looking to live independently from your family, together with a group of housemates or friends, or as a married couple, our team takes the time to get to know you—your likes and dislikes, future aspirations, and past experiences. We are committed to matching people with tailored living options that reflect their personalities and lifestyles. Together, we create the support system that works best for you.

In Living Options & Services, people live together in homes throughout the community. Each person enjoys a private bedroom with shared living spaces. 

The Arc employs a team of highly trained Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who work directly with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. DSPs provide anywhere from 18 to 24 hours of support every day. These services take place within group homes or your own home.

Our DSPs support people in every facet of their lives, such as accessing healthcare, attending medical appointments and follow-ups, building and maintaining relationships with housemates and friends throughout the community, facilitating daily living activities like cooking and laundry, and actively engaging in the community on weekends by attending religious services and participating in social clubs or events. In every interaction, The Arc’s team meets you where you are and provides the resources and support you need.
