Agency Weekend Respite

Often referred to as the Saturday Drop Off Program, we have provided this service for over 20 years to families and consumers from the Cumberland County area. It is available to eligible consumers between the ages of 15 to 21 and is offered at our Evanoff Center in Vineland on Saturdays throughout the year from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

During each Saturday session, consumers move through a variety of activity stations inside the Evanoff Center that range from computer games, traditional board games, music activities, arts and crafts projects, a fully stocked amusement arcade, and more. On seasonal days, some consumers choose outdoor activities in our playground, pavilion, and outdoor court areas. Consumer choice is the format of this program and while each activity is structured and supervised by Arc of Cumberland trained staff at a ratio of no more than 4 consumers to 1 staff person, there is no mandated daily schedule for each person.

The Arc of Cumberland County does not provide transportation to or from this program.

This program is coordinated by Perform Care through their Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Services. The Arc of Cumberland County is an approved provider of Perform Care services.
