Caring with Open Arms

Walking through the doors of one of our homes, you can immediately feel that this is where family lives. Bedrooms are decorated with favorite sports memorabilia, colors vary greatly from room to room reflecting the personality of the resident...and the environment is filled with the marks of a normal life…scrapbooks, photos, toys and games …all worn with time by loving use. This is home.

This is where caregivers have become family...not because they are required to do so, but because they love doing it. This is the dignified and meaningful life that Open Arms Care strives to create everyday for those individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have been entrusted to our care.
"Leading dignified and meaningful lives"

The Foundation

The Open Arms Care Foundation (OACF) is comprised of exceptional leaders committed to service. This governing board plays a critical role in supporting the values of OAC.

Art Gallery

Creativity abounds. Color, texture, brush strokes, and medium are all considerations the Open Arms Care Artists use to create beautiful, original works of art.

Home Away From Home

"My daughter is a resident at Open Arms Care and she gets the best care and attention I could ask for, and I know she is being well taken care of. Thank you Open Arms."
