About ARC Marion
ARC Marion, Inc., established in 1959, creates opportunities for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ocala and Marion County Florida to live, work and play to the fullest of their capabilities.
They offer a variety of programs for clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities ranging from the Early Intervention Program, for ages birth to 3-years, to the Seniors Program in our Adult Day Training.
Adult Day Training (ADT) provides individualized support services for adults with all levels of intellectual and developmental disabilities to increase their levels of independence. They offer individualized specialty training in the following program areas: Daily Living, Janitorial, Lawn Service, Computer Skills, Recreation, Arts and Crafts, Health and Safety, Job Skills, Enclave Program and Transition program into Community Employment as well as offering a Senior Program and an Intensive Program.
Companies in our community contract with ARC to do “piece rate” work (clients are paid a per piece salary). This allows the individual to grow skills at their own pace and develop other important abilities such as staying on task, manual dexterity, and working with others.
They also travel to many of the contracted companies daily, with usually 10 clients and one staff person where they do similar work in an actual manufacturing environment. This gives their clients the opportunity to get real time experience but most importantly to also meet and become friends with others in the community who they otherwise might not have a chance to meet.
