The Program
The goal of the Brockton Resource Center (BRC) is to provide long-term services to adults with developmental disabilities. Our services are for those who are in need of full-time programming to ensure the development and maintenance of functional skills required for self-advocacy, community integration, employment and self-care.

Services and Support
At the BRC, we cater to adults with severe to profound developmental disabilities. The individual’s needs are of the highest priority. With a low consumer-to-staff ratio, we ensure proper one-on-one instruction.

Training Offered
The Arc believes that proper training leads to expanded opportunities. This is why we offer expert training at the BRC in the following areas:

Self-help skills;
Activities of daily living;
Vocational skills;
Community awareness; and
Social interaction skills.

Unique Aspects of this Facility: Full-Time, On-Site LVN
The BRC is one of two Adult Development Centers in the Inland Empire that is licensed for all the restrictive medical conditions that have traditionally prevented adults with severe to profound developmental disabilities from participating in adult day services.
Due to the nature of this program, The Arc employs a full-time Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) to provide nursing care services to the individuals we serve. Our LVN also oversees the training of our direct care staff.

Medical conditions accommodated at this facility include, but are not limited to:

Medication administration;
Wounds;
Use of oxygen;
Insulin dependent diabetes;
Inhalation-assistive devices;
Colostomy-ileostomy care;
Indwelling urinary catheters;
Gastronomy-tube feeding / hydration;
Tracheotomy care;
Communicable infections; and
Individuals who rely on others to perform all activities of daily living.
