A variety of residential options are available:

Individual Residential Alternatives (IRA):

IRA's are 24-hour supervised group homes individually tailored to support people with diverse needs. With encouragement, individuals with developmental disabilities learn skills to become more independent and integrated in community life.

Supportive Apartments:

Supportive Apartments are an option for individuals seeking less than 24-hour support. Agency staff are not typically on–site at all times when individuals are home. Staff assistance is provided on an as-needed basis as individuals work towards their goals of living independently.

DSP Week

DSP Week

During the week of September 10th, the Arc of Yates joined other organizations across the country in celebrating Direct Support Professionals (DSP) week. The week-long celebration recognizes the dedication and contributions of DSP’s and the vital role they play in making a difference to individuals with developmental disabilities. 

 

The Direct Support Professionals at the Arc of Yates report that their ability to enhance the lives of others is tremendously rewarding.  “I made a difference in my life when I made a difference in theirs” reported one DSP.  Caregivers will attest that these staff members are like family to the individuals they support, and it is not unusual for Direct Support Professionals to work with the same individuals for most of their careers.

 

At the Arc of Yates, it is an honor to recognize and express appreciation for our Direct Support Professional staff and the inspiring work they do.  It is because of their skill, commitment and significant efforts that we positively impact the individuals that we support and our community at large
