Hello Everyone! We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.

As you are aware, Governor Newsom and County Public Health officials have issued executive orders requiring all individuals to stay home or at their place of residence until further notice. More information can be found at

The Arc of Amador and Calaveras provides essential services and our dedicated employees have been working every day to continue to provide services to our consumers in order for them to achieve their goals set forth in their ISPs and IPPs.

In order to comply with the safety directives to keep people safe, we have had to modify some of our services, including the closure of our day program facilities. The closure of the day program facilities has been extended and we will not reopen the facilities until given guidance from Governor Newsom and our County Public Health offices to do so.

Thank you all for your patience during this time.




Coronavirus and The Arc’s Services

Is The Arc closed? NO – Arc Staff in every program will be working throughout the COVID-19 self-isolation period. Day Program facilities are closed temporarily but Staff are working to continue to provide services so that people served can continue to work towards their goals. ISP’s and IPP’s will continue via phone conferencing whenever possible. The Arc is working very closely with VMRC and other providers to come up with ways that services can be provided in the home using technology and other options for those that do not have internet. SLS and SEP services are being modified so that Staff can continue to provide support and services while limiting face-to-face contact.

Thank you all for your patience during this time. This self-isolation protocol is new for all of us and we’re doing our best to provide services while considering the safety of our staff, people served, care providers and the community. With cooperation and good communication we’ll get through COVID-19 together.
