The Rensselaer ARC places an emphasis on providing services in integrated, small settings. Individualized person-centered planning is used to insure that each participant is involved in activities which meet their unique interests and needs. The Programs listed will provide some insight to some of the service we offer.

Testimonials and Success Stories

When I first started working here over 20 years ago, I thought it wasn’t for me.  Since that time I have come to realize the people we support every day have taught me more than I could ever teach them.  They have shown me empathy, compassion, and understanding.  With that has come a deeper understanding of life and enjoying the small successes.  We sometimes tend to focus more on failures instead of celebrating what really matters.
