Community Work Programs
Arc Community Work Services offers supported-employment services to a targeted population of individuals with severe disabilities to enable them to obtain and maintain community-based, integrated, competitive jobs in local businesses.
Employment consultants provide on-the-job training to the supported employee and consultation to the employer for the duration of the employment agreement. [more]
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]
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]
