Community Connections

The Arc of the Ozarks believes that everyone should have the opportunity to live, work, learn and play in their community. Community Connections utilizes classroom-style settings and outings to ensure a purposeful environment that allows individuals to benefit from activities in their community.

Day Programs

The Arc's Day Programs provide supports in small groups in the community or at one of our five facilities. The program offers various educational, social and recreational activities.

Independent Living Apartments

The Arc of the Ozarks manages a supervised apartment complex and oversees an Independent Living Program. This service provides guidance for individuals who may need some social support and direction to live in an apartment of their own. The individual may know how to cook and complete basic domestic tasks but still needs support in planning menus or shopping for groceries. There is an employment requirement for living in this facility.
