Day Support Program
The Arc established a Day Support Program (DSP) in March 2016 at the Abram Frink, Jr. Community Centers. The program is conducted four days per week and provides Continuing Education, Life Skills Training, and Vocational Training.
After age 22, when special education ends in our public schools, young adults are left home with nothing to do and often digress rapidly when their cognitive abilities are not reinforced regularly. The Arc’s DSP enables them to continue to have a busy, active, productive and enriched quality of life.
In 2017 the DSP named themselves “The Arc of Abilities” emulating the breadth and diversity of the program and the impact it has had on the clients that are served. The vocational training has led to employment for some of our clients.
