Adult Life Enrichment
One of the greatest challenges for families of adults with moderate to severe disabilities is finding a program that can meet the developmental, physical, and behavioral needs of their family member. While school-aged, individuals with special needs have access to a myriad of services which are often provided at no cost to their families. Once graduated, however, they find themselves in need of community-based programs which currently are largely unprepared to provide the intensity and range of services needed to continue the level of learning these young adults experienced while in school. The Arc helps answer the question “What happens when the school bus stops coming?” through our Adult Life Enrichment Program.

Our participants helped assemble backpacks with supplies for Community First Health Plans. These backpacks will be given to school-aged children at their upcoming Senior Citizen Appreciation Day outreach event. We love giving back to the community! https://t.co/gVZUQ91BBG
