The Arc Nassau’s Life & Job Skills Development Program

An important element of our Adult Training is our Life & Job Skills Development Program, which provides valuable interactive and educational classes that teach participants how to manage a wide range of daily tasks. The Arc Nassau’s professional staff works with participants to convey, how to manage money, cook meals, perform household duties, use a computer, follow sound health and safety procedures, learn social skills, and participate in art and music appreciation.

The Arc Nassau’s Community Inclusion Program

Individualized training in recreation and leisure settings enables individuals with disabilities to become more integrated into their local community. Our Community Inclusion Program teaches individuals how to use the library, public recreational facilities and other community-based resources. Community Inclusion helps our individuals improve their social interaction skills and gain confidence in real-life settings.

The Arc Nassau’s Transportation Service

Transportation is a critical service. Without it, many individuals we serve would not be able to participate. Professionally staffed vehicles transport individuals to and from their homes in Fernandina Beach, Yulee, Callahan, Hilliard and Bryceville.

We provide door-to-door transportation service for eligible Medicaid Waiver individuals from their homes to The Arc Nassau and to off-site work locations. The Arc Nassau also provides no-cost transportation to and from local events and activities.

RESPECT Off-Site Employment

Regardless of an individual’s disability, securing employment can be challenging. The Arc Nassau is committed to facilitating employment and other opportunities for individuals such as full- and part-time off-site employment at RESPECT of Florida locations managed by The Arc Nassau. RESPECT is the central, not-for-profit agency of the Florida Department of Management Services that works with Florida nonprofit organizations employing persons with disabilities.

The Arc Nassau contracts with RESPECT of Florida to manage off-site wage earning opportunities for individuals performing general maintenance services at the Florida Welcome Center and weigh stations located on I-95 in Nassau County at the Georgia-Florida border, U.S. Highways 1 and 17.
