The Residential Program (ARC & JCDC/Respite) provides 24/7 active treatment and nursing care for individuals with developmental disabilities in a campus-like setting. The Residential Program serves over 50 permanent individuals. Our goal is to support individuals with the skills and abilities necessary to attain independence in Adult Daily Living skills and grow as individuals in becoming valued members of their chosen communities.


  • Two residential settings (39 bed Adult Residence Center and 20 bed Jacklitz Continuing Development Center) with Resident Workers provide consistent active, individualized treatment for individuals.
  • Community integration opportunities are offered for all residents. Professional support services services (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech, Social Work) are provided pursuant to individualized, person-centered plans.
  • Both ARC and JCDC are certified by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and Ohio Department of Health
