The Arc of The Glades is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation staffed by 13 professional and paraprofessional employees. We provide adult education, pre-vocational, sheltered activities, vocational, Supported Living, Supported Employment and Community Integration Services for adults with cognitive disabilities and/or other developmental disabilities. Support services also provided by The Arc include transportation, 2 meals and a snack daily for participants in the facility-based Adult Day Training Program, and administrative services.
The Arc transports clients with disabilities exclusively (100% with disabilities) to and from the Adult Programs site at 4250 N.W. 16th Street, located between Belle Glade and Pahokee, and serving Western Palm Beach County during weekday program hours. Evening and weekend transportation is also provided, primarily to our clients in the Supported Living Program, Supported Employment Program, Community Integration Program and the Employment Simulation Program.
The agency’s commitment to availability to individuals in independent living situations and employment situations at any time needed, day or night, may also require vehicle availability. Further, The Arc is the only provider to this service population in Western Palm Beach County, thus becoming the conduit for case management and networking of other non-developmental service needs for our transportation disadvantaged clients.
