The Arc of Cumberland and Perry Counties' (CPARC’s) Residential Services provides a variety of community living opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities. Residential Services operates in several communities in Cumberland, Dauphin York & Perry Counties. Staff support individuals in reaching their goals and dreams living in their communities.

A plan of service for each individual is developed annually by the individual and his/her team. The staff encourage each person to learn and develop independent skills and realize his or her potential. The services staff provide vary from person to person and may include: assistance with meal preparation, medication management, budgeting skills, personal hygiene, etc.

CPARC’s Residential Services continuum includes:

Group Homes:
Individuals live together in a family setting with staff supervision up to 24 hours a day. Staff teach daily living skills to individuals to help them become more independent. Activities include: meal preparation, laundry, shopping, cleaning, etc. A group home may also be the ideal setting for an older adult with developmental disabilities who is no longer able to live a fully independent life.

Apartment Clusters:
CPARC manages apartment buildings for adults with developmental disabilities. Staff are present in these buildings, providing daily support and assistance in life skill areas as necessary.

Cluster Plus Program:
This program operates in the same manner as cluster apartments with staff available in the same apartment complex to provide daily support. In addition, an evening meal is provided family style to assure nutrition and socialization.

Apartment Living:
CPARC staff provide minimal support as needed to individuals who live in their own apartments in the community. These individuals have demonstrated the necessary skills to live independently with limited support from staff.

Community Support Programs:
Individuals participating in community support programs are able to remain in their own home or with their family. The staff provide support and services as necessary, to ensure continued independence and to allow individuals to enjoy life in their community. These services occur on a prescheduled arrangement.
