The Achieving Reunification Center (ARC) is a "one-stop" center providing a host of services to help parents with children in placement overcome barriers toward family reunification. All families have resources to achieve reunification through the provision of appropriate support services that ensure the child's safety and strengthen the family's ability to become stable and self-sufficient. ARC helps parents/caregivers address the often conflicting mandates of child welfare, public benefits and workforce policies. By bringing systems together ARC helps parents and caregivers achieve positive outcomes for themselves and their families. On-site supports include, but are not limited to:

  • Technology base learning (ABE/GED/ESL Education)
  • Workforce Development
  • Counseling, Support & Parent Education
  • Housing & Financial Counseling
  • Fatherhood Support
  • Outpatient Mental Health Clinic
  • NA/AA Fellowship groups
  • Free Career Clothing
  • Supervised Visits
  • Child Care
