TARC’s lights may be off and the gate may be closed, but TARC provides 24-hour supports off campus through the RESIDENTIAL SERVICES department. The department makes possible the dream of many individuals that desire their own independence. It allows adults with developmental disabilities to experience a level of autonomy through different residential housing settings that include Community Homes, Supported Independent Living (SIL), Center-Based Respite, and In-Home PCA/Respite based on individual needs.
Each of the programs are designed to increase independence, foster social interaction, as well as participate in community and recreational activities while providing safe and healthy environments. Support staff are available 24 hours a day to provide the level of care required by each individual, while other programs utilize the supportive services per the needs of the person. Individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities are increasingly learning how to live independently, manage money, stay healthy, cook, secure a job, and build relationships.
