Northeast Arc’s New Liberty Tree Mall Location:
The Center for Linking Lives

Have you heard that Northeast Arc has opened a new facility in the Liberty Tree Mall, located in Danvers, MA? This new facility houses our day habilitation and pre-employment programs - as well as offices for many of our other programs. PCM and FI departments will remain at their current address.

The Center for Linking Lives was built for people to learn more about Northeast Arc’s vast amount of programs as well as operating as a facility where people can come together! Some highlights of the space include a technology lab where individuals can learn about and try different technologies that might help them live on their own or be more independent, small meeting rooms where they can meet with speech or occupational therapists or have mock interviews to prepare for meetings with potential employers, and group spaces where social and professional programs can be held. The space has proven to be versatile!

The location also houses a 1,000 Square Foot store front called “parcels” that sells products exclusively made by those with disabilities or by companies owned by people with disabilities.

Come see the facility for yourself at:
