IMPORTANT NEWS: Based on guidance received from the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) on Friday March 13th, The Arc of Atlantic County closed our Day Habilitation or Adult Training Center (ATC).
The decision to close our Day Habilitation or ATC is being done out of an abundance of caution for the people and families we serve. To our knowledge, no person who uses our services has been diagnosed or is being tested for COVID-19. At this time, we anticipate the closure will last for a minimum of two weeks. As this is a fluid situation, this timeframe could change based on the guidance we receive from State, County or local health officials and DDD leadership.
Thank you for understanding. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this closing causes.

Our organization was founded in 1961 by parents and other community members who were concerned about the lack of services available for people with disabilities and their families. Since then, The Arc has continued to grow and provide services for children and adults with I/DD including vocational and employment support, housing and independent living opportunities, family respite and recreational programs.
The Arc of Atlantic County promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
