Based in Lexington, NC, The Arc of Davidson County recognizes the inherent rights of all people to participate fully in communities of their choosing. Founded on the principles that all people must have equal access to all opportunities, we advocate with and for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families.
Do you need support and services but not sure where to turn? Get in touch with us. We are here to help you navigate your journey.
We have an extensive list of community partners and resources. All of us are happy to assist you!
The Arc of Davidson County manages 4 group homes throughout Lexington. During the day, residents are employed in the community, involved in community activities, or engaged in a prevocational work setting. In the afternoon, residents return home where Direct Support Professionals offer the support and guidance needed for community living.
Individual goal plans are developed and implemented with each resident to attain their highest level of independence. Goal plans include areas such as cooking, personal hygiene, social skills, budgeting, and constructive leisure activities.
Hub for activities both on and off campus to maximize integration and independence. Accepting ages 18 years and up. Innovation Day Supports or private pay.
Children of all ages enjoy opportunities to play with peers, participate in sports, work on arts and crafts, and enjoy their summer months. However, families of children with I/DD may have limited resources. Many summer camps may not have staff trained to support children with I/DD or may limit the age of participating children to 12 years.
The Camp offers children with I/DD the same opportunities as typically developing children: the chance to participate in summer camp. Summer camp provides respite for families, often stretched to provide care for their child once school closes for the summer.
Our deep gratitude to our partners:
