The Arc of Madison County has provided residential services to clients since 1998. Eight homes are located in the Huntsville area, providing a safe, comfortable living environment for the resident adults. Each resident has their own bedroom decorated to reflect his or her personality and interests to make it truly home.
The goal of the Arc’s residential services program is to assist each resident in reaching as optimal a level of independence as possible. The residential services program offers training in a home-based setting to adults with intellectual disabilities. This training includes personal care, community education, independent living and communication skills, self direction and money management. Independent living skills and training are provided to help each person transition from a state residential institution or a family home to independent living in community settings. The residents become active members of the Huntsville community through outings to various events and service projects to benefit others.
