The Arc of Warren County provides a unique Early Intervention (EI) experience for families of infants and toddlers from birth to 3 years old with developmental delays or disabilities.
Community-Based Support is designed to strengthen and promote families who provide care within the family home for a family member with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
The Arc of Warren County has provided residential services for adult men and women with various developmental disabilities since opening our first group home in 1982. Currently we serve 81 individuals in 16 group homes and two supervised apartment programs throughout Warren County.
The Arc of Warren County serves more than 1,100 people annually…
…including persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their family members. County-wide programs include community living arrangements (residential), family support, advocacy, recreation, summer camp, Special Olympics training, early intervention, and a wide variety of social services.
