Programs

The Rensselaer ARC places an emphasis on providing services in integrated, small settings. Individualized person-centered planning is used to insure that each participant is involved in activities which meet their unique interests and needs. The Programs listed will provide some insight to some of the service we offer.

Brunswick Center Services

Brunswick Center Services (BCS) is a group-based day habilitation program that supports citizens of our community who are developmentally disabled. BCS offers both community-based and site-based supports, with a focus on advancing community membership, personal wellness, and meaningful relationships.

BCS offers specialized supports to people with intellectual challenges along with physical and/or mobility concerns and who maybe aging. Although supports are mostly provided in a group settings, the person and their interests and unique gifts are always honored.

Accessing Supports

The Arc of Rensselaer County welcomes any inquiry or application for a support or service for a person with a developmental disability. We are open to explore the support possibilities with those who are interested prior to any formal application for services. We can also provide guidance and direction on how to apply for OPWDD related services. Our agency works closely with the local arm of OPWDD to determine eligibility and availability for services.

Testimonials and Success Stories

I came to The Arc looking for a job and I’ve found so much more - family, friends, and the opportunity to learn and make an amazing difference not only in my life but all those I come in contact with. I am truly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful place and to work side by side with such loving and caring people. I respect each and every one of you for all that you do.
