Residential

This is the place where friendly faces gather around the dinner table, where holidays are celebrated together and guests and family are always welcome. Home is the place where people share the ups and downs of life, where mutual respect and camaraderie are the expectation. Home is where the heart is.

Community Residences

Lovely, immaculate Arc-supervised houses are situated in neighborhoods throughout Rockland County. Each living environment is home to a small group of people whose ages, interest and levels of ability are similar. A ranch-style house in a suburban setting may be prefect for people with physical challenges. A home  or apartment within walking distance to restaurants and movie theaters may be just the thing for a few young friends who wish to live together.

Access to public transportation, proximity to the local library and the distance to the nearest supermarket are issues worthy of consideration when choosing a home. Arc listens to the needs of the individual. Then—and only then—Arc sets out to create the appropriate living arrangement. Highly skilled and qualified staff members supervise residences around the clock or as needed and transports people to and from medical and dental appointments and recreational activities and events.

Leisure Activities

Backyard barbecues, birthday celebrations, vacations, attendance at houses of worship, trips to the supermarket, the mall, the movie theatre, the coffee shop—these are components of life at home. Arc staffers assist residents in pursuing individual interests and hobbies at home and in the community. Many people who live in ARC residences also enjoy the range of activities, classes, courses, trips and events offered through Arc of Rockland’s Recreation Division.

Residential Habilitation

For some adults with intellectual or other developmental disabilities, living on one’s own with minimal supervision is a viable option. A bit of guidance with bill paying, suggestions for meal planning, oversight where banking is concerned may be all that is necessary to keep home life running smoothly. Through Arc’s Residential Habilitation Division, skilled staffers meet regularly with people who live on their own or in the family home to help them master the skills necessary for independence.
