Activities are also tailored to individual interests.

Admission: Admission into The Arc's Community Based Services and Supports program vary depending on the source of funding a person is able to receive. Individuals may apply to the State Department of Human Services (DHS) for admission into either the DHS Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver program or the Intermediate Care Facility for the Mentally Retarded in the Community (ICF/MR-C) program. The Arc receives funding through both programs which are financed by the Hawaii State Legislature and matched with Federal Medicaid funds. Admission to both programs require that participants be Medicaid eligible, have a diagnosis of mental retardation or a related developmental disability and require ICF/MR-C level of care (e.g.
institutional care). However, the ICF/MR-C program also requires that the individual be at least 18 years of age and reside in an ICF/MR-C licensed facility. The HCBS program is geared towards individuals living at home with their family, in a group home or on their own. Other individuals and families who may not be able to gain admission to these two programs may pay "out of pocket" on a fee-for-service basis.
