When I think of ARCH I think 'Today's gonna be a good day!'"
Our Drop-In program encourages the social skills and positive behaviors necessary for daily living. Our primary objective is to help our clients maintain their hard-fought independence gained through years of therapy. Recreation therapy is an essential preventative measure to promote wellness and quality of life while containing social service costs. Without regular community interaction, people with special needs regress quickly and require costly social supports.

Recreational activities include games, sports, performing arts and arts & crafts. We also have speakers come in to talk to us on a number of topics. We go on local outings as well as on longer adventures. Click on the photos below to see the different programs and activities we provide. We are the only recreation center in Maricopa County that has an all-day adult drop-in program every weekday for only $2.00 a day/$40.00 per month.

If you are new to our program please fill in our Participate form first and wait for us to contact you. Once approved you can come back here and pay your fees. If you are a regular participant at our Drop-In program and have already been approved, you can pay your monthly fees here.

PAY FEES

Our Drop-in program is available to anyone with a disability. However, if you receive state funding from the DDD you may be eligible for our DTA (Day Treatment for Adults) program.
