The Arc in Hawaii has partnered with the City and County of Honolulu and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in providing homes for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). With the assistance of these governmental agencies, The Arc in Hawaii has constructed or purchased four apartment buildings and 17 homes in which residential services are provided to individuals.
Residential Services are only available to those who are eligible for Medicaid Waiver Services. Participants have access to residential settings that include varying levels of supervision and daily care, depending on the individual’s needs and independence. All of the residences are located in the community so that the participants can experience maximum integration within their community.
