Resident's Point of View - Residential Openings!

Collage of The Arc's residents and participants in April.

The Arc, Ocean County Chapter is currently welcoming new residents and participants with openings in our group homes, supervised apartments, and adult training centers (day program). 

"I like living here at Laurel Oaks. It’s different then when I was living at home with my mom. I am trying to get used to the different noises. I enjoy the outings we do like bowling, the comedy show, the movies, walking on the Barnegat Trail with staff and going to the gym on premises.  I am looking forward to the Walk-A-Thon and the spring formal that are coming up. We are also going to a dance at the Manchester High School. This is close to where I lived with my mom.  I enjoy living with my roommate Richard.  All the staff are very nice and good cooks. There’s always staff around in case I need to talk to someone," said Butch, a resident in Supervised Apartments.

Residential Services has six vacancies in two group homes and four supervised apartments for the right candidate. The Arc can provide 24/7 supervision, clinical supports and services, transportation, fun community outings, and more to ensure a full and productive life in the community.

Vocational Services has openings at Community Connections in Lakehurst and the Lakewood Adult Training Center (ATCLA) in the industrial park. Individuals with disabilities looking for job training, day habilitation services, and transportation can contact Heather Hans, Vocational Services Director, at for more info. Our participants would be happy to share all the fun and exciting things they do each day with prospective clients and families!

The Arc has been providing supports and services to people with disabilities in Ocean County since 1955. Our vision is for people with IDD to be respected, valued, and included in all communities while also directing their own lives and choosing from a vast selection of services to meet their needs.
