Population(s) Served

The Arc believes that people belong in their own communities and focuses on providing the support needed for individuals to live as independently as possible. These supports combine the individual’s strengths with opportunities for growth to grant them maximum control of their lives. Supports may include residential, community inclusion, and respite services, as indicated in their person centered plan through Community Mental Health.

Population(s) Served

The Hugos Plan offers persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families a formal and comprehensive plan of lifetime advocacy designed both to secure appropriate services throughout the individual’s life and to provide consistent follow-up with the individual and service providers.



The Hugos Plan is designed to meet the needs of the individual by utilizing all available community resources. A flexible individual Plan of Service (POS) is developed, based on the needs and wishes of the participant and his/her family, and will be used to determine necessary supports and services.



The Hugos Plan exists to provide a sense of security to parents and families when they become disabled or are otherwise unable to handle their own affairs or those of their family member with an intellectual or developmental disability. When a parent of an individual has passed away, the Hugos Plan will cooperate with remaining family members and others in a consultative capacity

Population(s) Served

The Arc serves as Representative Payee for individuals receiving Social Security benefits. We work with individuals and their support providers to develop a budget to ensure that needs for housing, food, and clothing are met. Once the basics are addressed, we will help budget monthly income to pay past due bills, develop plans for future expenditures, and provide spending money, all in conjunction with the individual’s hopes, wishes, and desires

Population(s) Served
