Residential Programs

Each of Liberty ARC’s homes has a unique character and ambiance that reflects the personalities of the individuals that live there.

A home is more than just bricks and mortar.  A home is a place to feel comfortable, supported and safe. Liberty ARC’s Residential Program is committed to offering services that promote individualized programming and supports based on each individual’s personal outcomes.

Our residential program is no longer confined to fitting people into traditional models of community living. Today we start with the person — and customize the home and the supports based upon their preferences.  Individuals choose the type of home, the area, the people with whom he or she wishes to live and the staff members who will provide in-home support.

Liberty ARC offers a variety of residential options, depending on the level of support and supervision needed by each person.   Residential opportunities include well staffed 24-hour supervised homes, supportive living apartments with staff providing assistance from 15 to 20 hours each week and family care situations where individuals live with families in the community.

For more information about residential options offered by Liberty ARC contact our Admissions Coordinator at 518.954.3239 or info@libertyarc.org.
