CoARC

We are the Columbia County Chapter of The Arc New York, the largest family-based provider of services to individuals experiencing disabilities in the United States.  Every chapter focuses on meeting the needs of people with disabilities on a daily basis, whatever their income level, age, gender, race/ethnicity, or language.  Coarc provides support to more than 500 individuals experiencing developmental/Intellectual disabilities through our facilities and programs. 


Columbia County Special Needs Voluntary Registry

Columbia County has created a Special Needs Registry for Columbia County Residents. This registry is for those individuals with medical conditions who require assistance, have medical devices that utilize electricity, are non-ambulatory, or have restricted mobility.  All information collected will be used strictly for emergency management purposes ONLY so that emergency personnel can check in on you in the event of a power outage with loss of phone service. During such an event every effort will be made to assist you. However, depending on the size and scope of the emergency, the resources available may be limited and therefore a guaranteed response cannot be made.


Living Resources Arts Program

Students in Living Resources’ Arts Program receive art instruction from an exceptionally talented staff of highly trained artists. We work with individuals with a variety of disabilities including, but not limited to, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism, hearing impairments, schizophrenia, and acquired brain injury. The program provides a stimulating and imaginative setting, with classes taking place throughout the week.
