Program Description
Life Skills and Rehabiliation Services:  The Arc of Gibson County provides creative and productive services for people with varying disabilities (physical, neurological, brain injury, behavioral, sight and hearing impairment, mental, etc.). We look at people's abilities and our services are always individualized to your needs

Community Job Placement Services are provided in Gibson and Pike counties, through the New Frontiers Employment Services offices located in Princeton and Petersburg Indiana. Placement in viable community jobs is a priority with our organization. People who are referred to us and funded from Vocational Rehabilitation in Indiana are assisted towards jobs of their choices in the community.

Project Search, a school to work program that focuses on providing students in the last year of high school with real world job experience through internships at a local business, is now operational in Gibson County. Provides students with the opportunity to gain marketable, transferable skills needed to gain employment in a professional setting.

Supported Independent Living (SILP):  This service provides opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to live on their own, but still receive minimal support from staff. These supports are usually in the areas of medical management, budgeting, outings, shopping, and daily living skills.

The Residential Program provides group home living for developmentally disabled individuals. The main focus of the program is to achieve and maintain the residents' maximum level of independence in all phases of daily living. Residents are trained and provided 24-hour supervision by qualified staff in a home-like environment.

All programming is monitored by the State Board of Health and funded by Medicaid. Women, Infant, and Children (WIC): A nutritional program, nationally recognized as an effective means for improving access to nutritious foods, and promoting healthier eating habits and lifestyles.
