Residential Services The Arc of Dutchess offers a wide range of home-based and community living opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities within Dutchess County. The diverse choice of resources and shared living services affords individuals a variety of personalized tools ranging from staff supports for emotional, physical and self-care needs, rent assistance, budget management, engagement in the community, health and wellness management, transportation for work and leisure interests and more.
