Community Services

All individuals referred to the Community Support Services Program must meet admission criteria for the agency. When a referral is received in the office it is forwarded to the Program Coordinator who will contact the family and schedule an intake conference with the individual, if appropriate, to determine if the individual understands the program and desires the program. Any necessary and/or additional collateral information may be requested at this time (i.e. verification that consumer meets state eligibility criteria for developmental disability diagnosis, medical information, etc.) [more]
 

Accreditation

Arc of Vigo County has been informed by CARF (The Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission), that it has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Employment, Personal and Social Services and Respite Programs. [more]
