Arc of Maui County
Arc of Maui County was established in 1954 by a group of parents and concerned citizens who sought services for their children with developmental disabilities when none were available. This agency is he shared vision of many dedicated parents, family members and people with disabilities, staff and advocates from the community and across the nation.
There are four Residential Group Homes located on Maui and one on Molokai with an additional home soon to be licensed on Maui. All homes are licensed by the State of Hawaii Department of Health and, all but one home is wheelchair accessible. Residential services are designed to promote quality of living for individuals with developmental disabilities. Each home has five residents and 24-hour a day staff support. All staff who works at the home is fully trained to provide support and assistance to meet the needs of each resident. Independence is promoted and skill building programs support and encourage each individual to attain their highest level of independence. Socialization and community integration are part of everyday life at the home. Nursing services and medication assistance are provided daily.
Adult Day Health
The Adult Day Health program is located in Central Maui and provides participants the opportunity to learn, socialize and enjoy community activities and physical exercise within a group setting in accordance with established individualized plans. Transportation and lunches are provided.
Each participant is assigned a fully trained staff person who assists the participant to meet his/her own program goals. Program goals are developed by the participant’s “circle of support” which includes the participant, guardian, family members and professionals. Services are available throughout Maui County including Molokai, Lanai and Hana and are provided both in the community and in the home.
Services include teaching basic skills in preparation for employment as well as helping participants obtain a job in the community. Participants earn money by making products such as piñatas and aroma beads and distributing and selling them in the community. Participants also have the opportunity to earn money by operating a snack cart at the Cameron Center. Participants are assisted to obtain employment with the supports of a job coach if needed to ensure they are an active, contributing member of their community.
This service is designed for family members to obtain short-term support and relief from their care-giving responsibilities.
