Home and Community Supports
The Arc of Howard County provides support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities that are individually designed to the person’s needs and desires, as well as to reflect an appreciation of their unique personality.
Through person-directed planning, people are assisted to develop living arrangements that meet their individual needs and desires, and to develop connections that enable them to become valued members of their community. The Arc has found that those directing their own lives and given the opportunity to make their own choices grow in confidence and self- worth. This confidence empowers them to live out their lives the way they wish and pursue their dreams. When enriched with community participation and acceptance, they become active members in the community.
