INSIGHT, Inc. the residential component of The Arc, offers adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities opportunities for personal growth and independence in a variety of supported living situations.
Community Residences (group homes) provide a family-like environment for adults to live together. Through a person-centered plan, each individual receives the needed support and supervision to successfully live in the community.
Supported Living offers a less structured environment for those adults capable of living semi-independently in the community who do not require 24 hour supervision. Individuals may live alone or with roommates in a house or apartment complex.
For a tour or to refer an individual to the program, please contact Karen Smith, Executive Director via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main office.

Our two licensed developmental child care centers offer a warm, nurturing environment for children and young adults from six months to twenty-two years of age with intellectual and developmental disabilities including children with autism. We specialize in serving those with medical and behavioral needs.
Each family is unique and has needs different from every other family, particularly if that child has a disability. The Arc’s Family Support Program offers a variety of services to help meet these needs including respite care and Parents’ Night Out, a monthly autism parent support group, information and referral services, parent workshops, and the annual Circle of Support Conference held in November.
A wide variety of activities are planned throughout the year to provide enjoyment and enhance social skills for children and adults. Some of these activities are offered weekly while others are seasonal.
Opportunities for productive, meaningful and compensated work add significantly to self-esteem for adults.
