Services Westchester

The transition from high school to adult life supports and services can be challenging.

The Arc Westchester helps 15-22 year olds and their families smoothly transition to their desired path. We provide guidance and information to families and school professionals throughout Westchester County.

The Arc Westchester Transition Services include:

  • Guidance on post-secondary opportunities including day programs, employment, college and transition programs
  • Education on services available through OPWDD
  • Individualized transition planning
  • Workshops for families and/or school personnel
  • Information and referral to community resources
  • Connections to supports and services both in and outside of The Arc Westchester


Due to the current Coronavirus health crisis, we are canceling all recreation events and trips through early June 2020. Over the coming weeks, we will evaluate the status of our Transition Prep Program, however at this time we anticipate proceeding with summer camps and other programs.

We recognize that this is an unfortunate situation to our families and participants, but the health and safety of our community is our priority.  We will contact you directly as soon as we know what our calendar will look like. Keep posted and stay well.
