Person Centered Practices

All of The Arc’s services are centered around individuals with disabilities and their preferences. We call this Person-Centered Practices which is the alignment of services and systems to ensure the person has access to the full benefits of community living in a way that facilitates the achievement of the person’s desired outcomes.


At The Arc, we utilized Person-Centered Practices and make sure we are using person-centered thinking which requires consistency of language, values, and actions – that reveal respect. We feel that everyone should have jurisdiction of their own lives, so as to enjoy a high quality of life, wellbeing, and informed choice.
