UPDATE March 30, 2020
Greetings Everyone, from The Arc of the St. Johns.
We are responding to the Coronavirus directives from every level you can imagine, keeping our individuals and staff safe and productive.
The full operation of our Adult Day Program has been curtailed for now, but individuals in our residential program have an opportunity to come out two houses at the time so that they can have a safe place to just get out of the house. Our group homes receive an extra thorough cleaning and sanitizing to ensure a clean and safe environment. Our transportation fleet is cleaned and sanitized, as well.
We have been able to retain our caring and dedicated direct-care staff, and I want to extend extra special thanks to all of them for coming to work every day to work with the individuals we serve. We are blessed to have this wonderful team working together, safely, at The Arc of the St. Johns. On behalf of our board of directors, our staff, and the individuals we serve every day, I want the community to know that all of us appreciate your trust, interest, and support you have given us for 48 years.
Please stay safe out there.
Kathy Jackson, Executive Director

For Community Families/non-residential clients at The Arc of the St. Johns:
The Adult Day Program will remain closed until further notice. Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
An Important message from Kathy Jackson, Executive Director of The Arc of the St. Johns:
The St. Johns County School District has amended the school calendar to extend the scheduled spring break by one additional week. Students will now return on March 30. The Arc’s charter schools – the Therapeutic Learning Center for Children and the St. Johns Community Campus will follow that schedule.
The Arc of the St Johns Adult Day Training (ADT) programs will continue daily operations as usual.
