The Rest of Your Life Awaits at the ARC.

ARC High Rise

Make no mistake about it, the best years of your life are ahead. Nowhere is that statement more true than at the Army Residence Community (ARC) – a place where common backgrounds create meaningful friendships and a fulfilling lifestyle is supported by engaging activities, first-class amenities, and quality health care services. Discover retirement living as it was meant to be – surrounded by friends, freedom, wellness, and security.

ARC is a nonprofit life plan continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in beautiful San Antonio, Texas which welcomes all commissioned officers, and noncommissioned officers (E-8 and E-9) retired or honorably discharged from all branches of service, as well as senior-level GS 12 and above federal employees, who are at least 62 years old, to include spouses and surviving spouses.


From its affordable standard of living to its local VA hospital and military bases, San Antonio is an ideal location to seize your best years to the fullest. At the ARC, you have a variety of options for zero-maintenance independent living, including high-rise apartments, lakeside duplexes, and cottages each with potential savings we can offer you.

"You can say that living at the ARC during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a particular blessing.  Not only has our CEO and senior staff ensured that all residents and staff were able to receive the Pfizer vaccine, but we have our 3 dining venues opened with safety measures in place, have meal pickups available daily with multiple choices for breakfast and lunch/dinner, and a multitude of activities from which to choose.  No reason to feel lonely or isolated.  I’m glad to have made the decision to move to this beautiful vibrant CCRC.  Believe you would be as well."                                                                                      - RADM.
