UPDATE as of 11.9.2020 from The Arc of the Piedmont

Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. With that said, the Arc is eager to open our day support programs in the safest and healthiest way possible. We have delayed our reopening plan and would like to share that with you. Starting on November 9th, the Charlottesville Adult Activity Center will start a soft opening by reopening on a part-time basis to individuals who currently receive group home services from the Arc.  We will reevaluate at each at that point to make sure it is safe to proceed before moving to the next stage. The Arc will provide transportation for Arc Group Homes and plan to transition to Logisticare in the future.  Transportation will need to be coordinated for all other individuals.  Every effort will be made to follow this schedule but, please keep in mind as with everything going on right now– it is all subject to change.

If you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to email (jsantoski@arcpva.org) or call us (434-977-4002) at any time and we will respond as quickly as possible.  Be assured we will continue to communicate with you as the situation changes and evolves.

Please remember that the health and security of individuals in our services is of the utmost importance to our mission of creating a safe environment for everyone.
