Waiver Services Through The Arc of North Carolina

If you are a recipient of Waiver services through The Arc of North Carolina, we have important news for you.

In accordance with the changes in Innovations Waiver service definitions to include the new “Community Navigator” service, we have changed our staff title from “Community Guide” to “Resource Advocate.” This new title will better reflect the activities of these staff members and help identify our staff to the community and the people with whom we work. Resource Advocates will be involved in aspects of Community Guide, Community Navigator and some Case Management. This change is effective immediately. Please check with your direct support professional or call The Arc of NC at 1-800-662-8706 if you have any questions.

We appreciate and celebrate the great work that our Community Guides have done in helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, and we look forward to continuing this tradition with our new Resource Advocates.
