Our day service offerings give people opportunities to learn new skills, build lasting friendships and give back to their community. We have six locations throughout Monroe County that each offers a unique setting and experience to suit every need.
“I was petrified about her going into an adult day program. I wasn’t sure she could handle it. But to me it’s even better than before. I fell in love with the Arc staff and how they greeted me. I liked their welcoming nature and the overall feel of the place. I said ‘I think it’s awesome here.’”
– Joanne Sant
A new state-of-the art facility, spacious core rooms, extensive therapy equipment and strong community volunteer programs are the hallmarks of this program. Conveniently located on West Henrietta Road, it also offers a fully accessible kitchen and computer room.
We designed Ballantyne to support the specific needs of older adults, including those with dementia. We provide participants with a host of engaging activities, like horticulture, fitness and music classes, and massage therapy.
This innovative program offers extensive, wide-ranging services for those with autism. Autism specialists provide therapeutic services, fitness programs at the local YMCA, and utilize hands-on activities to develop people’s communication and social skills.
This home-like setting supports a small number of people with autism or similar disabilities. We focus on sensory and community-integrated activities like volunteering with Meals on Wheels and the Ronald McDonald House.
Community Arts Connection
This service center provides a diverse array of offerings in the arts that encourages creativity and self-expression. Activities include a dance troupe, community-based musical group, and classes in the visual, fiber and literary arts.
At Community Connections, we spend half of the day volunteering in the community to build social dexterity and on-the-job skills, and the remainder of the day learning responsibilities and expectations in a team-based environment.
This program is a popular, non-traditional day habilitation service that enables people to be more independent. After a brief check-in for attendance, they then go out into the community and volunteer for four to five hours each day.
