Adult Day Programs

If you’re looking for a place where you can make friends, explore your community, have access to transportation and a healthy lunch, look no further!

The Arc of Hilo’s Adult Day Programs provide all this and more.  where Community services are offered Monday thru Saturday in the community, via transportation provided in our modern air-conditioned vans, and a healthy lunch is included!

Participants also have access to the Arc’s state-of-the-art Weinberg Multi-Purpose and Job Creation Center, a computer lab, art center, and a fully permitted commercial cold kitchen.

Group participants can also participate at the Arc’s Organic Farms project, where they can learn how to grow nutritious vegetables, and use what they harvest in cooking classes held in our fully permitted commercial kitchen.

Individual supported community services are also available.

Did you know?

Many individuals with disabilities, especially older adults, remain isolated and stuck at home, unaware that they can access a meaningful day program, make friends, and stay healthy. The Arc of Hilo’s vision is to help ensure that anyone who needs a community-based day program has access to one!

How do I apply for services?

There are currently two ways to be eligible for Arc of Hilo Adult Day services:  First, are you already eligible for Medicaid waiver services? (How to Apply - Developmental Disabilities Division (DDD) (hawaii.gov).

If you are eligible for Medicaid Waiver services, you can attend the Adult Day Program. You can also participate in both supported employment and our Adult Day program -- you don’t have to choose one over the other.  Ask us how we can build a schedule that works for you!

The second option, if you’re not eligible for Medicaid Waiver, you can also apply for funding through the LASR program, facilitated through Goodwill Industries Hilo, who can authorize the services you choose here at the Arc of Hilo.

The LASR program provides services to non-Medicaid Waiver eligible participants with an intellectual disability. The focus of the program is to enhance the individual’s experience in the community, provide opportunities for job training and placement, and build life skills. Some activities include: volunteering, activities of daily living, community integration, and developing independence.  Contact us to find out more at info@hiloarc.org
