You Can Be a Hero From Home!
Over the past 40 years, The Point has helped thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities reach their highest potential educationally, residentially, socially and vocationally… and WE WANT TO KEEP GOING!
The spread of COVID-19 will slow us down, but we won’t let it stop us! We will adapt to the new circumstances and continue to work together with families to provide a strong sense of community and support while following all CDC and KY.gov recommendations. We know we can provide quality care while keeping our community safe, but we need your help!
Be A Hero From Home is our new monthly giving program that allows you to donate from a distance while staying close to your community. Now more than ever, we need your help to ensure we can keep all essential programs running, maintain other programs through their temporary closure, and prepare to fully re-establish operations when restrictions are lifted.
Please see the statement below from our President Judi Gerding which outlines the current changes to our services and programs.

COVID – 19 Statement
The Point Arc cares about doing our part to keep students, families, staff, and our community healthy and safe. Like you, we are following COVID-19 developments and will communicate updates via email and social media.
At this time, we are taking the following steps within our programs:

- The Zembrodt Education Center is postponing all classes, workshops, and events through May 1st, with the possibility of an extension beyond this date. Programs and classes include Employment, PEERS, Social Communication, Career Exploration, Pre-Vocational Skills, Activities, and ZEC Social.
- We will be rescheduling Trek for ZEC 5K for late summer or the fall.
- Dedication of our Matthew Remke Home and Hammond Family Respite Home scheduled for Sunday, March 29th will be rescheduled.
- Our Residential team has created a safety plan to keep residents and staff and healthy as possible.
- As a staff, we are self-monitoring and will report symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath. No staff member will work if symptoms are present.
- In order to keep everyone as well as possible, Point Perk will close inside seating but will provide carryout services.
