Spending your day YOUR way at any one of several day habilitation sites. These smaller day habilitation groups are designed to meet the ever-changing needs of each person. We have programs suitable for the young and active, the elderly, and everyone in between. Once initial goals have been established, people who receive services with us will begin to learn new things, such as self-care, social skills, basic computer skills, or cooking and gardening. Although many activities take place at the program site, regular outings and volunteer opportunities provide plenty of chances to participate in the community.

Whether it is visiting a local museum, dining out, or volunteering with Meals on Wheels, the local United Way office, or one of several other organizations, people who receive services through Arc of Seneca Cayuga are an integral part of their county.

Based on a person's needs and preferences, individuals may also be able to receive clinical services during their day with us. Operating five days a week, our day habilitation programs are open to adults of all ages, abilities, and interests.



Helping you be the best you can be. In this new and unique program design, each person helps to create the path to their own success. Realizing no two people are the same, we offer individuals a format that allows them to structure their day with job readiness training, personal enrichment classes, volunteer service, and employment at the Center or in the community. While being supported and guided by our staff, each person will gain greater self-esteem and become more independent, making their own choices and advocating for themselves.

Job readiness classes include money management, reading instruction, and workplace conduct, all of which help define a person's job interests and skills. Our range of personal enrichment courses helps people improve communication skills, learn about health and wellness, and find a creative outlet.

Employment opportunities may range from shredding paper right in the Community Learning Center to detailing cars in a local garage. Each person receives on-the-job support from staff as needed; wages vary from piece-rate to minimum wage or better.

Complementing all this is our commitment to helping people become active and comfortable in the community through volunteer opportunities. Being involved in the Community Learning Center will empower each individual to become the best they can be. (The Community Learning Center is located in Waterloo.)
