The Arc of Greater Williamsburg Launches New Day Support Pilot Program is your source for free news and information in Williamsburg, James City & York Counties.

arcThe Arc of Greater Williamsburg recently announced the debut of a new pilot project that aims to significantly expand the educational, vocational and life skill opportunities currently available to its clients.

The Arc is a local organization that provides a variety of services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including continuing education, health and wellness programs and social outlets.

Though the Arc has provided numerous monthly programs and activities to its clients in the evening hours for more than 40 years, the newly launched Day Support Program provides assistance for families in need of support during working hours and an additional opportunity for respite to caregivers.

The program is presented in partnership with James City County Parks and Recreation and currently takes place at the Abram Frink Jr. Community Center three days a week.

Executive Director Pam McGregor is hopeful program will find a permanent location where The Arc can offer day support five days a week and accommodate a larger number of participants.

For more information about the program or how the community can help with the sustainability of this project, please contact The Arc at 757-229-3535 or e-mail McGregor at
