PACT (Parents And Children Together) is a community-based parenting-education program for Somerset County area families headed by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

PACT’s preventative family support approach helps families access community services so they are able to live, work, and parent independently in order to keep their children emotionally healthy and educationally on track.

The Arc of Somerset County's Family Support Program assists individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in their efforts to remain together in their homes and communities. The home is typically the best environment for the individual so Family Support is often defined as "whatever it takes" to help an individual stay in his/her natural home. Family involvement and empowerment are crucial in determining the needs of the individual or family. Raising a child with an intellectual and developmental disability can challenge a family's ability to cope. Parents, siblings, caregivers and friends often feel overwhelmed. The Family Support staff works with the family to determine needs and assist with obtaining quality supports necessary to enhance the quality of life for the families and the individual with a disability.

The Arc of Somerset County has been providing services within Somerset County for over 45 years through 42 separate programs. We currently impact over 1,400 individuals and their families every year. The Arc monitors the ever changing needs of those we serve and modify current services or create new services to meet these needs.

These individuals now have the opportunity to attend a college program after high school graduation.

Respite programs offer parents a much needed break from the daily care of their child/young adult.
