Friday Night Social (The Dance)

“The Dance” is one of The Arc’s most popular program since 1978 and strives to increase social skills, meaningful participation, and self-determination, all in a recreational opportunity. It is an evening where the community comes together in a safe environment to have fun, meet friends, and of course, dance.

The dance is most Friday nights from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

Adults 18 years and older only. 

Lifelong Learning & Empowerment Trainings

Training's include our award winning Healthy Relationships an 8-week Healthy Relationships Program to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  We are addressing an unmet educational need: what makes ANY relationship healthy or unhealthy.

Education about healthy relationships gives participants practical information to help them establish and respect boundaries.  This program teaches participants the concepts of respect, choice, and trust as well as details on identifying and reporting abuse.  Our curriculum is based on the inherent value and worth we each possess as human beings. 

The Healthy Relationship Program is provided free of charge to participants, and we provide all materials and all instruction.  Healthy Relationships is an 8-week, hour-long program offered once a week.

Representative Payee 

The Arc provides protective payee services to individuals who receive Social Security benefits. Our financial counselors are experienced professionals who work confidently with clients to help them meet their personal and financial goals. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those receiving Social Security benefits achieve greater financial stability and independence with support from The Arc's Representative Payee Services. Our trained financial counselors provide personal assistance to help clients manage their monthly income, pay bills, stay on budget, and avoid predatory lending and financial exploitation.
