The Arc of Northeastern Pennsylvania

The Arc of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s mission is to protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes. Their areas of focus include reintegration, recreation, services/supports, and advocacy.

  • Vocational – Based out of Adult Day Services, The Arc’s Vocational Services provide meaningful and gainful facility-based work experience to individuals participating in the Adult Training Facility.
  • Seniors – Located at Robinson Park, Scranton, the Seniors Program is designed to meet the needs of aging adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • Supported Employment – Supported Employment Services assists adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities gain and maintain employment.
  • Recreation – Throughout the year The Arc offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Every effort is made to meet the needs of participants by offering a diverse selection of both community and facility- based activities.
  • Community Residential – Community Residential affords people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to enjoy “everyday life” in regular homes on ordinary streets throughout their neighborhoods.
  • Supported Living – The Arc Supported Living program assists individuals to fully function as members of the community with-out twenty-four-hour staff supervision.
  • Life Sharing through Family Living – Family Living/Life Sharing offers an opportunity for an individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities and a family or individual to share their lives.
  • Information and Referral – Individuals and families may not be aware of community supports and services available for them. Therefore, The Arc will provide information about available community resources and make referrals as needed.
  • Individual Advocacy – In most cases, this is a short-term association between the advocate and the client. Issues are diverse and include accessing services, employment, benefits, exploitation, education, housing, abuse, neglect, legal matters, and more.
  • Systems Advocacy and Governmental Affairs – In line with their on-going effort to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Arc actively communicates with legislators regarding pending and/or necessary legislation.
  • Public Awareness and Community Education – The Arc speaks to individuals and groups on various issues related to prevention and reducing the consequence of intellectual and developmental disabilities through education, research, advocacy, and the support of families, friends, and community.
