The Arc Jacksonville operates five group homes for 44 residents. Each group home includes shared meals and leisure time activities and residents have personal space for being apart from the group and time to work on personal goals for exercise, learning and hobbies.
Individual care plans define each resident’s unique wellness routine including medications, therapies and nutrition guidelines. Each resident works to optimize their independence by increasing self-care, participating in house activities, and gaining community safety skills.
Each home has a special personality derived from the people who have chosen to live there. At three of the homes – Kaden Road, St. Nicholas and Grove House – six residents enjoy private bedrooms and share living/dining space.
At the other two homes — Bert Road and Jammes Road –13 residents enjoy their private space and common areas in sprawling one-story residences built to accommodate a crowd.
