hawaiian-danceThe Arc of Burlington County is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1956 by a group of parents who got together, realized how few disability services were available for their children with developmental disabilities and decided to do something about it. They formed the Burlington County Unit for Retarded Children, which later became The Burlington County Unit of the New Jersey Association for Retarded Citizens, and, in 1998, officially, The Arc of Burlington County.

Walkathon-2014-Tori-Decklin2Our goal is to help improve the quality of life for children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, as well as their families. To that end, we presently offer a wide range of disability services that include 11 community residential homes and apartments for adults, five adult day care programs, a developmental day care center for infants and toddlers from birth to three years, a month-long summer camp for individuals 13 and older, and an extensive recreation program open to adults throughout Burlington County with developmental disabilities. We have recently added the In-Home Supportive Services and Self-Directed Programs to our list of services, and we provide staff to work with individuals in the community who need assistance with life skills, money management, shopping, medical appointments, and a range of other activities, while still maintaining independence in their own homes.

January-dance-whole-gang-two-stepping1walking2We operate The Arc Thrift Store Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. at our Burlington City location, 223-5 High Street. We’re happy to accept donations other than stuffed toys or upholstered furniture or anything that is too big for our store. In addition, we offer lawn care services through our Lawn Crew, part of the Lumberton Adult Vocational Program. Need your lawn cut and edged or those pesky fall leaves raked and bagged? Call us to set up an appointment.
