After-Work Respite Program Expands

May 2nd, 2018

Beginning on Tuesday, May 1st, The Arc of Essex County’s After-Work Respite program officially began operating two nights a week.  The program was formerly available exclusively on Thursday nights, but now includes a Tuesday night option for families looking for coverage beyond a typical Day Program schedule.

After-Work Respite offers participants a fun-filled evening with their peers while socializing and engaging in a variety of activities such as arts & crafts, games, cooking, and trips into the community. Transportation to the program is provided by the attendee’s Day Program provider.  Transportation home is provided by The Arc of Essex County.
