Since 2004, our advocacy efforts have focused on helping families with children maneuver the special education process to ensure a positive education. Our advocacy services are free of charge to families and individuals in Mercer County.
Community Participating Supports
Through both facility-based training and hands-on exploration, we coach individuals through making decisions and solving problems, while also increasing their potential for employment in the community.
Since the 1970s, MCAR has offered residential services to individuals with disabilities. Through group homes, respite care and family living opportunities, we provide a safe and secure place for individuals to enjoy everyday life.
Our habilitation aide program assists families, caregivers and individuals with disabilities by providing trained aides that help with daily living activities and promote community inclusion.
We believe that a job gives a person purpose, dignity and independence. Take advantage of our contract jobs, on-site businesses, community employment program or internship coordination.
The Clinical Department offers Behavior Support Services to individuals with challenging behaviors. Individuals that reside in Residential Group Homes or attend Community Participation Services can receive Behavioral Support Services.
