Adult Day Programs
Our Adult Day Services Program serves individuals over the age of 21 years with intellectual or developmental disabilities who benefit fom a daily program of activities that develop skills in adaptive living, self help, personal awareness, communication, cultural experience, socialization, and employment basics.
Pre-vocational training takes place at The Arc Thrift Shop, located in Burlington City, NJ. Here, support coordinators help the men and women in the program learn the ins and outs of running a store: sorting goods and stocking shelves; interacting with shop customers; operating the cash register; and maintaining the facility.
All adult Day Program individuals also have the option of seeking employment in the community where, with staff guidance, they investigate job opportunities and receive staff support once a job is secured and fully learned. We also encourage community integration by exploring opportunities for volunteering at local sites like libraries and area nursing homes, maintaining our community garden plot, etc.
The Adult Day Program is eligible for funding through your Self-Directed Services budget, or through referral by your support coordinator.
