Services from The Arc of Harrisonburg and Rockingham
If you or someone you know would like to receive services, the interested party must have an intellectual or developmental disability, be 18 or older, and must be out of school. Interested parties can elect to pay privately or receive services through Medicaid Waiver coverage.
What Qualifies as a Developmental Disability?
A developmental disability is a severe, chronic condition attributable to a mental or physical impairment, manifested before the age of 22, which result in substantial limitations in several life areas and is likely to continue.
What is a DD Waiver?
A Medicaid Waiver is a funding source for services designed to allow children and adults with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community. A Medicaid Waiver can access services that may include moving into a group home or a supported living situation, or to attend community integrated day programs such as The Arc. There are several types of waivers in Virginia, with access determined by the individual’s level of need. Harrisonburg-Rockingham Community Services Board (HRCSB) is the only point of access through which to receive a waiver.

Elect to Pay Privately
If an individual interested in receiving services through The Arc of HR does not have a Medicaid Waiver, interested parties can choose to pay out-of-pocket. Rates are dependent on the type of participation an individual is interested in (community engagement, coaching, in-home and/or respite services) and how often this service is received (once a week, five days a week, etc.).
