Our Place, located at 295 Market Street, Seneca, SC.   Our Place is just as its name states:  it is a place, a physical location, dedicated to serving the disabled while providing supervised activities. Our Place is designed to benefit both the adult with I/DD and that person’s daily care provider.  The program at Our Place includes the following:

·       Bowling

·       Nutrition

·       Exercise and healthy living

·       Art activities

·       Community events

·       Dining out

·       Independent living skills

Our Place participants partner with organizations that allow them to “give back” to the community.  

The Arc of Oconee County is excited as we grow and diversify to better serve our special needs population.  Future projects:

·       Partner with Hamilton Career Center to expand gardening properties which will provide locally grown produce for Considerate Cafe

·       Provide informational classes for care providers

·       Coordinate respite care for I/DD individuals
