The Arc of Blair County and Penn State Altoona have formed a ‘friendship’. The program is called: WE ARE…Friends!  This program is designed to create natural friendships between Arc members and Penn State Altoona Students. The long-term goal is that the friends from PS Altoona will become ‘natural’ friends that plan get togethers without The Arc’s or parent’s involvement. This program is structured to create typical friendships with peers doing what friends do – hang out. A new season of We Are…Friends is about to begin. The group plans activities and get together in the community about once every 4 to 6 weeks. There are certain criteria that must be met in order to participate in the program. The most critical part is participant must be under the age of 28, have reliable transportation to events, and can attend without support or minimal support. If interested, please email the arc at: for more details.
