The Arc Carroll County offers a wide range of services. Each person supported is involved in the important decisions that affect their life. Service plans are self directed by each person supported as much as possible to guarantee that their individual goals and preferences are met.
Community Living and Support
The Arc Carroll County and Carroll County Public Schools have partnered together for over 17 years, providing educational support services to high school students and students in the Post-Secondary Program ages 18-21. The Arc’s Educational Instructors practice person centered goals for vocational and educational success, focusing on education, job placement, vocational goals and objectives, lesson planning and curriculum implementation. The Educational Instructors attend students’ Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings and transition meetings. The Arc Carroll County participates in five distinct educational programs: VOICE, TCP, ST@CC, TE@CH, and TE@M. The department also works closely with The Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) to provide career related classes, job development, and job support for students and adults. We provide six-week paid internships to students with a DORS vocational plan. These internships provide on the job training and follow person centered employment goals.
School bus transportation is provided for Carroll County Public School students with special needs. Each student receives door-to-door transportation services while enrolled in the school system.
Adult transportation is provided in support of the various Employment and Day Services programs.
