Support for People with Disabilities

We are proud of the wide variety of programs we offer people with disabilities and their families. Our staff works in collaboration with other professionals such as speech therapists, psychologists, and nutritionists, as well as by partnering with community resources and other nonprofits to seek the best possible support for those we serve.

Individuals may self-refer or be referred by a personal representative such as a parent, conservator, care provider or San Diego Regional Center service coordinator.

Once a referral is made, a meeting is scheduled with Arc staff and a tour of the program is provided. During this meeting, an intake packet is given to the prospective participant. Following the initial meeting and tour, an intake appointment is scheduled where the prospective program participant returns all the necessary documentation and an assessment of the individual occurs. At this time, a start date and the placement of the individual is determined based on the evaluation criteria.
