The Arc's Agency With Choice (AWC) program is funded by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and based on the philosophies of self-determination and self-direction. This empowering program allows individuals and families to customize their own services while receiving supports and consultation from The Arc's Support Coordinators.

Our AWC program has two separate components: The Individualized Day Supports and the Individualized Home Supports. As the Agency of Record, The Arc plays a co-supervisory role with the individuals and families we support.
