LARC operates a 16,000 square foot facility in Lansing, serving 100 individuals daily, as part of its Community Day Services program. We offer a variety of vocational and life skills that offer individuals the opportunities to increase their independence in various aspects of their life, including community employment.
Through a process known as “discovery,” individuals experience different aspects of the community and learn about the numerous opportunities that could be available to them. Job training offers individuals an opportunity to become skilled workers through community work crews and individual job placements.
For those not interested in community employment, we offer a variety of classes that provide a person-centered approach to help individuals achieve their highest potential. Individuals learn vocational skills, life skills, functional academics, self-care, gross and fine motor skill enhancement and communication skills.
Life skills classes include cooking, computers, economic skills, grooming and safety. Health awareness classes include exercise, nutrition, dance and team sports. Communication classes include sign language assistive technology. Our programs and classes constantly evolve to meet the ever changing needs of our individuals.
