A Place To Enhance The Quality of Life for Those We Serve

People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities must be able to lead the life they choose so that they can have a quality of life that is meaningful to them. They often do not have the services, supports, and personal relationships they want and need to lead a full life in the community. They may encounter attitudinal, public policy, service system, and other barriers that keep them from choosing where they live and work. Moreover, they often lack opportunities to participate in and contribute to their communities. With your help, we are working every day to build a future of inclusive work, play, worship, community, travel and more.

Background

COVID-19 Closure Update

We truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the best course of action for reopening. The Arc of Central Virginia takes the health and safety of our employees and individuals very seriously. With the spread of the coronavirus or “COVID-19,” The Arc must remain vigilant in mitigating the outbreak. In order to be safe, maintain operations, and as we consider reopening, we have developed a COVID-19 Exposure Prevention, Preparedness, and Response Plan to be implemented, to the extent feasible and appropriate. Parents and caregivers may request a copy of the plan, to be sent by mail or email. Please email info@arcofcva.org or call 434.845.4071 (and leave a message) if you would like a copy.

The reopening date has not been officially decided, but we will continue to remain closed until futher notice. We look forward to returning to The Arc and will take every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and the individuals who attend the center.
