The Arc of Rensselaer County provides pre-vocational services to people with intellectual disabilities that are interested in employment. Pre vocational supports help people develop the skills necessary to gain and maintain community employment. Currently, The Arc operates two work centers, Riverside North and Riverside South in Troy, NY where people learn valuable work skills while being employed producing products for local, regional, national and international customers. People receiving pre vocational supports often learn and practice employment skills in actual community setting on a paid or volunteer basis. Beginning July 1, 2013, all pre vocational supports for people not already attending Riverside will be delivered in community settings.

Fourteen years ago I met a very special young woman who changed my life forever. I grew up here, I learned about relationships and unconditional love. I always tell people that once you meet the people you will be supporting you will form a bond that lasts forever. I have learned the joy in assisting people to achieve the things in life that matter to them.
