ABOUT THE ARC'S SULPIZIO FAMILY CENTER IN SAN DIEGO
The Sulpizio Family Arc Center of San Diego serves up to 150 people with disabilities near downtown San Diego. Our programs are housed in a state-of-the-art facility that is the hub for the Center’s Adult Development Center, Activity Center, Community Based Program, and Seniors Program.
Like other Arc centers, our Adult Development Program has an instructor-to-participant ratio of 1:4 and provides a program of on-going assessment in the areas of self-help, socialization, daily living, sensory-perceptual-motor skills and communication skills to adults with developmental disabilities. We work to maintain or improve their social and self-help skills, enabling them to function as independently as possible in the community and to maintain current placement or move to a higher level program.
The Adult Development Center and Activity Center programs utilize eight themed classroom type settings that provide structured, site-based programming. The classrooms feature a Computer Lab and Sensory Stimulation room as well as Therapeutic Recreation, Theatre, Spa, Pet & Nature, Music, and Art & Crafts rooms.
The Community Based Program and the Seniors Program are both based at the Sulpizio Family Center; however, participants spend a majority of their day off-site and active in the community through volunteerism, paid work opportunities, and/or visits to San Diego locations such as parks, museums, senior centers, shopping centers, movie theaters, and more.
