After-Work is Returning to The Arc of Essex County

After a pause of more than two years due to COVID-19, The Arc of Essex County is excited to be reopening its After-Work Program in October 2022.

The After-Work Respite Program is a community integration program for adults that allows caregivers to take the time they need to relieve stress, restore energy, and manage family life. Attendees to After-Work Respite sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays enjoy a variety of activities, including arts and crafts, music, dancing, and community trips. A light dinner is also included. The sessions run from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Opportunity Zone in Maplewood, and transportation home is provided within The Arc’s catchment area.

Dates are scheduled on most Tuesdays and Thursdays through 2023. For reservations or questions, contact Dacia King-Sarkodie at (973)-535-1181 ext. 1272 or
