Transportation Services are provided to and from all vocational service programs and community based opportunities.
The Arc Vocational Services Department provides job training, employment opportunities and transportation to people with developmental disabilities with the goal of finding productive employment, increasing self-sufficiency and self esteem, and providing valuable resources to the community.
Vocational Services offer a variety of training and employment opportunities through our Adult Training Centers, Arc Employment Center, Arc Industrial Services and Self-Directed programming. As a first step, a vocational evaluation is conducted to help identify individual strengths and skills. Choices of employment and day programming are presented to the individual so decisions can be made based on their profile and personal interests.
