The Adirondack Arc (Franklin-Hamilton Counties Chapter, NYSARC, Inc.)

The Adirondack Arc's stated mission is to provide opportunities to people with developmental disabilities to live a full and meaningful life through improved support in the areas of education, personal development, home life, productive employment, community involvement, and recreation.  We use a person-centered approach to all supports and services.  Our agency has been voluntarily accredited by The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL) since 2001, and our use of the Personal Outcomes Measures has helped us define and measure the quality of people's lives as well as the supports we provide.  Services and supports include:  home-based early intervention program; center-based preschool education programs; various residential opportunities for all ages; in-home staff supports and programs for people living at home with family or on their own; respite supports; advocacy and referral services.
