The Arc of Atlantic County has been helping people live the lives they choose since 1961. In addition to housing programs, employment opportunities, family respite services and adult training, we offer case management to navigate the complex system of qualifying for services and maintaining support over a lifetime.

Things are more complicated than ever as the Division of Developmental Disabilities is changing to a “fee for services” model. It’s  important to get in touch with The Arc and speak to a Case Manager right away.

We pride ourselves on assisting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to access the services they need. The role of a Case Manager is to help a person arrange the most important aspects of their daily lives – from finding transportation and making appointments to securing needed equipment and advocating for the best medical care available.

Our staff will interact with many systems on your behalf including education, health, Social Security and the DDD.
