ArcGNO is known to compassionately care for people with intellectual disabilities or developmental delays (IDD) from birth-to-death, but an IDD diagnosis does not define those we care for. We strive to create communities that are inclusive and accepting, and we encourage: Independence, self-esteem, and self-reliance that leads to a fulfilling and engaging life.
How We Help
For those students in their final two years of Special Education, we help coordinate the transition from the school setting to the post-school setting. For those in school, and those adults currently enrolled in ArcGNO, this coordination starts with our Independence, Confidence, Ability & Need, or I-CAN program, which provides job coaching and pre-employment assistance, such as learning how to write a resume and present yourself in a job interview.
ArcGNO also provides individualized skills assessment and job placement in the community. Those who qualify through Louisiana Rehabilitation Services and who desire to work in local businesses are assisted in finding employment and provided with ongoing onsite job coaching at their place of employment.
ArcGNO Social Enterprise Employment
ArcGNO has an entire division called Arc Enterprises, which operates businesses in commercial groundskeeping, janitorial services, and Mardi Gras Recycle Center (MGRC). Through our social enterprises, we can employ those with IDD and provide a wage-earning job throughout the year.
Employment is a vital part of living a meaningful and inclusive life in the community
