While the world shuts down in early 2020, the Arc of Dauphin County keeps the doors open to help our loved ones as much as possible. Remote learning was hard on many students, so the advocacy program stepped in to help ensure learning plans were followed and added when needed. Many of the direct service programs had to go remote for the time being but found ways to overcome obstacles and continued to push forward.
In late 2021, a reorganization internally began to look at how we can serve the community in which we are located to the best of our abilities. Knowing that many of our fellow service providers did not make it out of the pandemic still open, we took the opportunity to move forward with taking in more consumers as well as more programs to continue growing for our loved ones.
