The Arc of Katy: Responding to Community Concerns About COVID-19


The Arc of Katy continues to work on planning and preparing for our 2020 Summer Program. Based on our current assessment, the very earliest that we will be able to reopen is Monday, June 15, 2020. In the meantime, we will continue to plan and provide online program opportunities. 

Our priority continues to be health and safety of our participants, staff, volunteers, all their families, and the community.  We are considering recommendations of public health officials and putting in place measures that will facilitate a healthy and safe environment for our participants, staff and volunteers when we reopen our facility. We will continue to remain diligent and assess the situation as new details become available.

  • The Arc of Katy is closing our adult day program through at least June 15, 2020.
  • Families and providers will not be charged tuition while we are closed. 
  • We cancelled our social programs scheduled in March, April and May. 
  • The Arc of Katy 2020 Gala Benefit Celebrating Hometown Heroes is rescheduled to August 28, 2020. 
  • We continue to monitor and consider the public health situation. We are keeping families and stakeholders updated through direct email and this website. 
  • Our staff and volunteers also continue to stay connected with participants through our Facebook page and YouTube channel. 
We appreciate the generous support we receive throughout the year from members, staff, volunteers and community partners to deliver safe, healthy, fun and meaningful opportunities for people with I/DD. We hope to be back in full operation soon. In the meantime, please continue to stay safe and healthy!
