Active Community-based Care

In addition to the above program elements, it is the intent of Open Arms to utilize local community resources for recreational activities including the library, local museums, parks, shopping centers, churches, YMCA, restaurants, volunteer opportunities at the Humane Society, and resources such as Michigan State University. These resources provide an environment to enhance the quality of life and increase the independence of residents.

We encourage all our clients to be a part of the community. No matter the intellectual or developmental disability, our staff accompanies individuals on walks, trips to nearby cities and landmarks, and other engaging community events.
