Uptown Day Habilitation
Uptown Day Habilitation supports individuals with disabilities by offering activities that stimulate intellectual, emotional and social growth while promoting life-long learning opportunities.
Uptown Day Habilitation is a sister program to Open Roads (Seniors). Both Uptown and Open Roads programs provide assistance in improving the skills needed to perform daily activities away from home.
Additionally, both programs focus on giving back to the community through volunteerism and participation in local community opportunities. Since 2012, Arc GLOW has staffed up to 780 volunteers and offered 5,300 total work hours through our habilitation programs. Additionally, Arc received a 2016 Partnership Award for the program’s efforts. Jobs offered include grounds work, baking, event promotion and more.
Our Day Habilitation programs have supported these partners:
US Army Corps of Engineers at the Mt. Morris Dam
Livingston County Nursing and Rehabilitation
Letchworth Central School Backpack Program
Springwater Fire Department for Fireman Appreciation

Testimonial from a Family Member
“There’s a powerful bond between a mother and her newborn, and that bond takes on added significance when your child is born with a disability. Twenty-five years ago I made a promise to my newborn son Matthew that I would make it my priority to give him a loving, happy and productive life, and so far I know I have kept my promise to the fullest extent. (Arc GLOW) has been an active part in Matthew’s development since the age of 7 months, and has always done an excellent job providing for his needs. ” — Karen Duboy, whose son Matt attends Uptown Day Habilitation
