At the order of Governor Tom Wolf, The Arc of Chester County Preschool, ABBLES, Adult Transportation Services & Recreation events suspended until further notice. The agency will continue to operate, however effective immediately we will not hold meetings at our office or allow any visitors to come to our facility until further notice.

The Arc of Chester County is closely monitoring the changing and evolving information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are working around the clock to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all those we serve in The Arc community. Our Program Directors are working closely with their teams to continue offering the uninterrupted services and assistance our population relies on, especially those with disabilities. We are following the directives issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Department of State, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Arc will continue monitoring advisories and government directives as they relate to the pandemic and keep you posted of any changes. Stay safe and be well.
