Social Program

The Arc of Katy hosts free monthly social events from September through May for teens age 16 and older and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The events are designed to provide individuals with I/DD the opportunity to interact with others to the full extent of their ability in a safe, supervised community setting and to have fun.  

The socials, planned and chaperoned by volunteers, include refreshments and activities such as dancing, bingo, and movie nights. Volunteer teams from local National Charity League chapters, high school honor societies, future business leaders’ associations, key clubs, and Best Buddies groups often join The Arc of Katy’s members in these fun events.

Most monthly social events are held on Saturday evenings at Monty Ballard Family YMCA in Cinco Ranch from 7 to 9 p.m. 

Social program participants must be members of The Arc of Katy, meet the program’s minimum requirements, complete and submit all required program registration forms.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and guidance from government and public health officials, The Arc of Katy moved its social programs online enabling individuals with IDD to participate in virtual dance parties, bingo and other fun activities online from their own homes.  The virtual social events are being held monthly on Saturday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. We look forward to returning to in-person programs soon.
